How are drug treatment programs corrupt

Evidence-oriented crime prevention in Germany

This volume presents the current development, characteristics and practical examples of evidence-based crime prevention. It includes the contributions of 76 renowned experts and thus gives a comprehensive impression of prevention science in Germany. Critics and supporters of the evidence-based prevention of crime have their say in order to give the reader a balanced overall picture of its possibilities and limits. Building on this, volume 70 names recommendations for action, among other things, for the areas of crime and prevention: treatment of sex offenders, prevention of extremism, (de-) radicalization in the penal system, burglary, human trafficking and the use of electronic shackles. The volume follows on from the current state of research and the political discussion and fills an existing gap in German-language literature.
