The 15th European Society of Criminology (ESC) conference, “Criminology as unitas multiplex: Theoretical, epistemological and methodological developments”, was held in Porto (Portugal), on September 02 – 05, 2015. The conference was attended by more than 1200 participants – scientists, researchers, practitioners, students and other guests. Participants had an opportunity to hear and discuss more than 900 presentations within about 300 sessions.
Traditionally, ESC supports young criminologists to attend the annual conference. This year, ESC fellowship recipients were Ivona Shushak and Angelina Stanojska (FYRO Macedonia) and Srdan Vujovic (Bosnia and Herzegovina). In the pre-conference meeting professor Anna-Maria Getos welcomed the recipients of the ESC fellowship, provided all necessary technical information and clearly suggested useful activities during conference time. Bearing in mind my primary research interests, I planned to visit sessions dedicated to corruption and organized crime issues and sessions dedicated to juvenile offending and juvenile justice. Additionally, I planned to attend all plenary sessions and some sessions with especially interesting topics.
