It is my great pleasure to introduce to you a new English edition of the Criminal Justice Issues – the Journal of Criminalistics, Criminology and Security Studies. As it has been the practice in previous editions, this one includes a wide range of current issues in the field of criminal investigation science, criminology, security studies and sociology. In this publication, you can find six scientific papers that meet the quality, scientific as well as professional relevance standards completely.. Among those papers, there are two original scientific papers, one preliminary note and three review papers. Original scientific papers refer to the area of criminology and sociology. On the other side, preliminary note refers to area of security studies, while review papers consider issues in the field of security studies, sociology and criminal investigation science/criminology.
The original scientific paper titled Police and Persecution in the Bosnian Krajina: Democratisation, Deprofessionalisation and Militarisation examines processes leading to police participation in ethnic violence during the war in the Bosnian Krajina and contributes to a growing body of criminological work using the rich resources provided by the ICTY and other courts dealing with atrocity crime.
