We conduct interdisciplinary research on security, crime, violence and extremism, legal norms, social control and social work. Our studies accompany the implementation of measures and laws and record the effects of social and legal interventions with a diverse and elaborate range of methods. With our scientific findings, we pursue the central concern of contributing to social security and social participation of as many stakeholder groups as possible.
