Neue Kriminalpolitik (NK)


The journal „Neue Kriminalpolitik“ (NK) brings together all disciplines of criminal science on the highest level. With its new format and new publishers, NK constitutes a major forum for criminal science, law and practice.

The journal aims at providing new impetus and a platform for interdisciplinary discussion, looking beyond the horizon by considering international experiences. The objectives pursued are inter alia a rational way of dealing with delinquency, maintaining the rule of law and protection of fundamental rights, reduction of public social control and giving priority to social and informal means of conflict management.

NK is a unique journal due to its specific method of processing its topics: analytical and practical, critical and up-to-date, professional and controversial, informational and committed. It aims at criminologists, sociologists, jurists, pedagogues, forensic psychiatrists and psychologists in practice, politics, science and education.
