Safety, Societal Problems and Citizens' Perceptions focuses on issues of conceptualization and the measurement of key constructs in the study of security in its broadest meaning: from fear of crime to corruption. Some articles present tests of theoretical models derived from theoretical criminology while other articles examine the different institutional reactions towards crime and drug-related problems (e.g. policing, the conflict of interests between private companies and authorities, restorative justice, etc.).
