Brief Description

   The Laboratory intends to carry out interdisciplinary research aimed at providing information about the risk factors and peculiarities which are specific for some acts of violence that are manifest in the Romanian space. The integration of Laboratory’s members within the European and international networks of researchers is one of the central objectives of the activities for this Laboratory. The ultimate goal of connecting researchers to the above-mentioned networks is to carry out comparative research intended to lay the basis for national and international strategies in the field of social intervention and prevention of violence. The research programs initiated by the members of the Laboratory will be centered on approaching and analyzing the problems generated by the Romanian phenomenon of crimes not only in the context of country’s membership of the European Union, but also within the larger context of globalization.
