About the BCNet partner institution

Although Bulgarian Association of Criminology does not conduct criminological research, it has an important role, particularly in the area of criminal justice policy and crime prevention. It satisfies the necessity of regular contacts and joint efforts of the specialists and the teams working in the scientific and the practice-oriented fields of crime prevention and control. A permanent seminar has been created at the Association. The major seminar events during the year are the scientific forums. These include conferences, debates on crime prevention and crime control as well as the discussion of the draft bills. More information can be found on www.criminology.bg .
