The conference theme is Evergreen Questions of Criminology: Get Smart and/or Get Tough? Our goal is to seek answer to the question what should be the aim of crime control policy and criminal justice in the early 21st century. Will we go into a more punitive direction or will we adapt more and more restorative methods? Of course, presentations are not limited to this topic; every paper on the field of critical criminology is warmly welcomed.
