Immigration and its consequences is a substantially contested subject with hugely differing viewpoints. While some contend that criminal participation by migrants is the result of environmental factors found in the host country that are beyond the control of migrants, others blame migrants for all that is wrong in their communities. In this book, experts from Europe, the USA, Turkey and Israel examine recent developments in the fields of culture conflict, organized crime, victimization and terrorism, all of which intersect to varying degrees with migration and illegal conduct. While the essays further our understanding of a variety of issues surrounding migration, at the same time they illuminate the complexities of managing the challenges as globalization increases.

In this exciting and topical collection, leading scholars discuss the implications of globalisation for the fields of comparative criminology and criminal justice. How far does it still make sense to distinguish nation states, for example in comparing prison rates? Is globalisation best treated as an inevitable trend or as an interactive process? How can globalisation's effects on space and borders be conceptualised? How does it help to create norms and exceptions? The editor, David Nelken, is a Distinguished Scholar of the American Sociological Association, a recipient of the Sellin-Glueck award of the American Society of Criminology, and an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, UK. He teaches a course on Comparative Criminal Justice as Visiting Professor in Criminology at Oxford University's Centre of Criminology.

When corruption is exposed, unknown aspects are revealed which allow us to better understand its structures and informal norms. This book investigates the hidden order of corruption, looking at the invisible codes and mechanisms that govern and stabilize the links between corrupters and corruptees. Concentrating mainly on democratic regimes, this book uses a wide range of documentation, including media and judicial sources from Italy and other countries, to locate the internal equilibria and dynamics of corruption in a broad and comparative perspective. It also analyses the Transparency International Annual Reports and the daily survey of international news to present evidence on specific cases of corruption within an institutional theory framework.

This was one of the first social science books to recognize migration as THE issue of the 21st century. The issue of immigration and crime in all of its many contexts and forms, is a problem which increasingly affects numerous countries throughout the world. In many countries, immigrants have been accused of disproportionate involvement in crime while, in others, immigrants are often claimed to be the victims of criminal offenders, as well as indifferent criminal justice systems. The subjects covered within this informative collection include the offending and victimization rates of immigrants and their dependants, institutional racism, human trafficking/smuggling and ethnic conflicts. In particular, the problems faced by female immigrants are addressed in detail. Whilst some papers look at the issues facing particular countries, such as Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, Israel and Turkey, others adopt a more comparative approach. Migration, Culture Conflict and Crime is an essential and compelling read for all those with a strong interest in this important area. Not only does it significantly advance our scientific knowledge concerning the relationship between immigration, crime and justice, but it also sets forth a number of proposals which, if implemented, could address many of the problems found in these areas. It is as relevant today as the day it was published.

Muslimische Friedensrichter tragen keine Robe und haben keine juristische Ausbildung. Und doch sind sie Schlüsselfiguren einer islamischen Paralleljustiz, die das deutsche Rechtssystem zunehmend aushebelt. Gemeinsam mit deutschen Strafverteidigern setzen sie durch, dass Messerstecher, Betrüger und Mörder straflos bleiben. Polizei und Gerichte schauen den Machenschaften ohnmächtig zu. Joachim Wagner beschreibt spektakuläre Fälle und enthüllt, wie unsere Justiz vor einer fremden Rechtskultur kapituliert. Friedensrichter klingt nach einem ehrbaren Beruf. Doch unbemerkt von der Öffentlichkeit und sogar der Justiz hat sich in muslimisch geprägten Einwanderervierteln eine islamische Paralleljustiz etabliert. In den Verhandlungen zwischen den Täter- und Opferfamilien geht es oft alles andere als friedlich zu: Um Schulden einzutreiben oder die Gegenseite einzuschüchtern wird erpresst, geprügelt und geschossen und selbst mit Mord gedroht. Sind sich Täter und Opfer einig, wird die Strafjustiz massiv behindert. Richter erleben regelmäßig, dass sich Opfer und Zeugen schlagartig an nichts mehr erinnern, frühere Aussagen bagatellisieren oder Aussagen vor Gericht verweigern. Dadurch wird das Strafmonopol des deutschen Rechtsstaates systematisch unterlaufen. Joachim Wagner hat intensiv recherchiert. Er hat Strafakten analysiert und ausführlich Kriminalbeamte, Staatsanwälte, Richter, Strafverteidiger, Streitschlichter und Islamwissenschaftler interviewt. Sein Buch ist auch ein Justizkrimi, der in eine verborgene Welt führt: Es schildert die rätselhaften Rituale von Familien- und Stammesfehden und die Machtkämpfe von kriminellen arabischen und türkischen Clans.

Dina Siegel and Hans Nelen The term ‘global organized crime’ has been in use in criminology since the mid 1990s. Even more general and abstract than its daughter-terms (transnational or cross-border organized crime), ‘global organized crime’ seems to embrace the activities of criminal groups and networks all around the planet, leaving no geographical space untouched. The term appears to cover the geographical as well as the historical domain: ‘global’ has taken on the meaning of ‘forever and ever’. Global organized crime is also associatively linked with ‘globalisation’. The social construction of both terms in scientific discourse is in itself an interesting theme. But perhaps even more interesting, especially for academics trying to conduct empirical research in this area, is the analysis of the symbolic and practical meaning of these concepts. How should criminologists study globalisation in general and global organized crime in particular? Which instruments and ‘theoretical luggage’ do they have in order to conduct this kind of research? The aim of this book is not to formulate simple, straightforward answers to these questions, but rather to give an overview of contemporary criminological research combining international, national and local dimensions of specific organized crime pr- lems. The term global organized crime will hardly be used in this respect. In other social sciences, such as anthropology, there is a tendency to get rid of vague and abstract terms which can only serve to confuse our understanding. In our opinion, criminology should follow this initiative.
