  • Real Lives and Lost Lives: Making Sense of ‘Locked in’ Responses to
           Intimate Partner Homicide
    • Abstract: The problem of intimate partner homicide is featuring increasingly on national and international policy agendas. Over the last 40 years, responses to this issue have been characterised by preventive strategies (including ‘positive’ policing; the proliferation of risk assessment tools, and multi-agency working) and post-event analyses (including police inquiries and domestic homicide reviews). In different ways, each of these responses has become ‘locked in’ to policies. Drawing on an analysis of police inquiries into domestic homicides in England and Wales over a 10-year period, this paper will explore the nature of these ‘locked in’ responses and will suggest that complexity theory offers a useful lens through which to make sense of them and the ongoing consistent patterning of intimate partner homicide more generally. The paper will suggest this lens in embracing what is known and unknown affords a different way of thinking about and responding to this problem.

  • Multi-level Analysis of Disorder Policing and Fear of Crime in South Korea
    • Authors: Joon Tag Cho; Jisun Park
      Abstract: Numerous studies have analyzed the relationship between disorder and fear of crime, but few have focused on the impact of policing against disorder on fear of crime. In order to fill in the gap of research, this study performs a preliminary analysis on the disorder policing and fear of crime in South Korea using a hierarchical linear model. The results showed that disorder policing was negatively associated with fear of crime. In addition, policing against disorder may be effective in reducing fear of crime in young females, who have the greatest fear of crime. Age was found to be inversely associated with fear of crime, and this effect was stronger in regions with more disorder policing. The results indicate a need for increased policing against disorder to reduce fear of crime, complete consideration of a region’s sociodemographic characteristics in the process of disorder policing, and more problem-oriented police activities where social disorder is prevalent.

  • Japan’s Reformed Prosecution Review Commission: Changes, Challenges,
           and Lessons
    • Authors: David T. Johnson; Mari Hirayama
      Abstract: This article evaluates how Japan’s Prosecution Review Commission (PRC) has performed since it was reformed in 2009 to allow panels of 11 citizens to override the non-charge decisions of professional prosecutors. In the first eight cases of “mandatory prosecution” that have occurred since 2009, the conviction rate is 20%—far lower than Japan’s usual conviction rate, which exceeds 99%. In the ninth case of mandatory prosecution, three former executives of the Tokyo Electric Power Company have been subject to mandatory prosecution for “professional negligence resulting in death and injury,” for failing to prevent the nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima that were precipitated by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, which killed 18,500 people and caused 200,000 more to flee their homes. As of 2018, the trial of the Tepco executives is still in progress. This evaluation study of prosecutorial reform in one Asian nation suggests that, in principle, prosecutors’ non-charge decisions can be checked and controlled. In practice, however, Japan’s PRC reform has done little to alter the standard operating procedures of professional prosecutors. Further reform of the PRC may be necessary.

  • Establishing Trust in the Illegal Wildlife Trade in China
    • Authors: Daan P. van Uhm; Rebecca W. Y. Wong
      Abstract: This study focusses on the role of trust in the illegal distribution of protected wildlife in China. This research attempts to contribute to the literature by disentangling the establishment of trust within the illegal wildlife trade based on ethnographic fieldwork between 2011 and 2016. Both traders and consumers are resorting to mechanisms of trust to foster exchange and to increase credibility of their agreements. This study discusses the existence of such mechanisms of trust within wildlife trafficking networks that are rather characteristic of illegal wildlife trade in China.

  • The Generalizability of Police Legitimacy: Procedural Justice, Legitimacy,
           and Speeding Intention of South Korean Drivers
    • Authors: Yeon Soo Kim; Kwang Hyun Ra; Kyle McLean
      Abstract: Empirical support for procedural justice theory in criminology is robust in the developed Western countries, whereas the results are mixed for non-Western or less-developed countries. Some scholars (e.g., Reisig et al. Journal of Criminal Justice and Security, 14(2), 147–164, 2012) argue that the generalizability of procedural justice theory may be limited to particular sociological settings, such as democratic and industrialized societies. The current study aims to review the international generalizability of the theory and to test the theory utilizing a South Korean driver sample. The results show that procedural fairness predicted legitimacy and speeding intention. However, perceived legitimacy does not mediate the association between perceived procedural fairness and speeding intention for Korean drivers. Considering the findings from the current study and previous studies, it seems that industrialization may not be a sufficient condition linking perceived legitimacy and compliance, but democracy may be the most significant precursor for the theory to work.

  • Who Are the Most-Cited Scholars in Asian Criminology Compared with
           Australia, New Zealand, North America, and Europe'
    • Authors: David P. Farrington; Ellen G. Cohn; Amaia Iratzoqui
      Abstract: Asian criminology is a fast-growing area of criminological research, but its influence on the international criminological landscape is largely unknown. The current article examines scholarly influence by studying citations in four international criminology journals (AJC—Asian Journal of Criminology, ANZ—Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology, CRIM—Criminology, and EJC—European Journal of Criminology) over a 10-year period from 2006 to 2015. Generally, the most-cited scholars in AJC overlapped with the most-cited scholars in the other three journals. The most-cited scholars in AJC tended to be based in the USA, working in the area of developmental and life-course criminology, and highly cited in the other three journals. Overall, Robert J. Sampson was the most-cited scholar in these four journals. Few scholars based in Asia were highly cited in ANZ, CRIM, or EJC, at least partly because few Asian scholars authored articles in these journals. We conclude that Asian scholars should be encouraged to carry out research that would interest international scholars and to submit their work for publication not only in AJC but also in other international journals.

  • Peer Reactions, Peer Behavior, Student Attitudes, and Student Deviance: a
           Comparison of College Students in Japan and the USA
    • Authors: Emiko Kobayashi; David P. Farrington; Molly Buchanan
      Abstract: This study presents evidence on the cross-cultural generalizability of differential association/social learning theory by testing whether the causal processes of learning attitudes toward deviance, posited by the theory, are equally applicable, and the causal links, specified by the theory, are equally strong in two diverse cultures—the USA and Japan. Drawing on the literature concerning cultural variability in individualism-collectivism, we predicted that the effects of peer reactions to deviance and peer deviance on a person’s attitudes toward deviance should be stronger in Japan than in the USA, and that the mediating effect of a person’s attitudes on the relationship of peer reactions and peer deviance to a person’s deviance should be weaker among Japanese than among Americans. Analyses of comparable survey data from college students in the USA (N = 625) and Japan (N = 591) provide generally supportive, but somewhat mixed, evidence regarding our predictions. In both countries, peer reactions to deviance predicted student attitudes toward deviance more strongly than did peer deviance. Peer deviance strongly predicted student deviance, while peer reactions to deviance predicted less strongly, and the effects were mediated by student attitudes in both countries. Contrary to the hypotheses, peer reactions and peer deviance did not predict student attitudes more strongly in Japan than in the USA. Also, peer deviance predicted student deviance more strongly in the USA than in Japan. In agreement with the expectations, the relation between student attitudes and student deviance was stronger in the USA than in Japan.

  • General Theory and Global Criminology: Childhood Environments, Problem
           Behaviors, and a Focus on Prevention
    • Authors: Michael R. Gottfredson
      Abstract: General theories of crime and delinquency are tested in part by their ability to explain the empirical findings of cross-national research. Systematic research using comparable survey methods provides a rich body of data from many countries and settings that inform such tests. There are several aspects of the general theory proposed by Gottfredson and Hirschi (1990) that facilitate the idea of global criminology which, coupled with this growing research literature, support the idea of general theories of crime. These include use of a “crime-free” definition for dependent variables, disciplinary-free assumptions about human nature, appreciating the distinction between propensities and events in crime theory, incorporating the burgeoning empirical literature from many disciplines stressing the importance of childhood environments and self-control, and focusing on recent successful prevention efforts. A set of research needs stimulated by modern global criminology are also proposed.

  • Supervised Machine Learning Approach Discovers Protective Sequence for
           Avoiding Sexual Victimization in Criminal Suit Documents
    • Authors: Kenji Yokotani
      Abstract: Previous research has studied effective self-protective behaviors, such as a victim’s physical resistance leading to the avoidance of sexual victimization. However, there are few studies on effective self-protective behavioral sequences, such as an offender’s physical violence followed by the victim’s physical resistance. Our study aims to clarify these sequences through a supervised machine learning approach. The samples consisted of 88 official documents on sexual assaults involving women, committed by male offenders incarcerated in a Japanese local prison. These crimes were classified as completed or attempted cases based on judges’ evaluations. All phrases in each crime description were also partitioned and coded according to the Japanese Penal Code. The support vector machine identified the most likely sequences of behaviors to predict completed and attempted cases. Approximately 90% of cases were correctly predicted through the identification of behavior sequences. The sequence involving an offender’s violence followed by the victim’s physical resistance predicted attempted sexual assault. However, the sequence involving a victim’s general resistance followed by the offender’s violence predicted completed sexual assault. Victims’ and offender’s behaviors need to be interpreted from behavioral sequence perspectives rather than a single action perspective. The supervised machine learning methodologies may extract self-protective behavioral sequences in documents more effectively than other methodologies. The self-protective sequence is a fundamental part of resistance during sexual assault. Training focused on protective sequence contributes to the improvement of resistance training and rape avoidance rates.

  • Police Legitimacy and Citizen Cooperation in China: Testing an Alternative
    • Authors: Ivan Y. Sun; Luye Li; Yuning Wu; Rong Hu
      Abstract: Past research has identified several mechanisms of promoting citizen cooperation with the police, with Tyler’s process-based policing model being one of the most frequently tested frameworks in this line of inquiry. Using data collected from a large sample of residents in a large Chinese city, this study assesses an alternative model of Tyler’s work proposed by Tankebe (2013), positing that police legitimacy, embodied in four aspects of procedural justice, distributive justice, effectiveness, and lawfulness, affects people’s obligation to obey the police, which further influences their cooperation with the police. Results from second-order confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling analysis suggested that Tankebe’s work is supported by the Chinese data. Implications for future research and policy are discussed.

  • Parental Indifference and Children’s Digital Piracy in South Korea:
           Mediation Effects of Low Self-Control and Misconception
    • Authors: Hyunin Baek; Jason A. Nicholson; George E. Higgins; Michael M. Losavio
      Abstract: Digital piracy is a global concern for society. Although adolescents’ digital piracy in South Korea is pervasive, its cause has rarely been examined. Using data collected by the Korean Institute of Criminology (KIC) in 2009, this study conducted structural equation modeling to determine if low self-control and social learning theory accounted for digital piracy. This study found that parental indifference increased adolescents’ digital piracy through low self-control and misconception about digital piracy. However, there were no direct effects of parental indifference on the digital piracy behaviors. In particular, the mediation effect in the model combining low self-control and misconception was greater compared to other models. Overall, the combination of low self-control and social learning theory provided a more meaningful framework to explain adolescents’ digital piracy. Results of this study can offer ways to aid in the examination and remediation of this particular form of deviant behaviors on the Internet by adolescents.

  • Effect of Organizational Support on Police Effectiveness and Behavior: a
           Cross-cultural Comparison
    • Authors: Francis D. Boateng; Guangzhen Wu
      Abstract: Organizational support has received considerable attention in the academic literature. However, in policing, this area of research has received limited attention. The present study surveyed police officers from two countries to investigate how officers’ perception of organizational support influence their sense of effectiveness and behavior. Findings revealed significant cultural differences in the perception of organizational support and its impact on perceived effectiveness and behavior in the two countries. Policy implications of the findings are discussed.

  • Internationality of Women Specialty Journals: Content Analysis and Survey
           of Editors
    • Authors: Bitna Kim; Alida V. Merlo; Chungyeon Seo
      Abstract: In the USA, in criminology and criminal justice, the women specialty journals, Feminist Criminology, Violence Against Women, and Women and Criminal Justice, have played a key role as outlets for research on women and crime. The current study examined the internationality—presently a significant criterion used to measure the quality of scholarly journals—of these women specialty journals. In order to measure their level of internationality, two indicators are studied: (1) geographic diversity of editorial boards and (2) the patterns (frequency, countries, international collaborations, and thematic directions) of the foreign-authored articles between 2010 and 2016. The authors also conducted a survey of the editors of the three women specialty journals to identify trends in international submissions as well as editors’ perceptions of the internationalization of their journals. The results of this study confirm that the three women specialty journals are becoming more international. Finally, recommendations to encourage international diversity of editorial boards and authorships, especially from East Asia, are discussed.

  • Inter-Agency Cooperation to Raise Awareness on Human Trafficking in
           Vietnam: Good Practices and Challenges
    • Authors: Tien Hoang Le; Kerry Carrington; Thanh Hung Tran; Thanh Phuc Nguyen; Trung Kien Le; Ngoc Ha Bui
      Abstract: Awareness-raising tactics are arguably the first priority in the prevention strategies in Vietnam at present. Awareness-raising campaigns are implemented through two kinds of communication methods: community-based activities and mass media. Although anti-trafficking activities in Vietnam have achieved some successful results, recent evidence suggests that a lack of clear progress in the areas of trafficking awareness-raising still remains. The quality and extent of collaboration between authorised agencies are key factors in anti-trafficking activities, including raising awareness on human trafficking. However, to date, there has been no systematic research on inter-agency cooperation in awareness-raising activities in Vietnam. This paper first reviews the nature of human trafficking and legal framework on raising trafficking awareness in Vietnam. The paper then presents successes and challenges of current inter-agency collaborative activities undertaken to implement the awareness-raising strategies.

  • Rural-to-Urban Migration and Juvenile Delinquency in Urban China: a Social
           Control Perspective
    • Authors: Yinzhi Shen; Hua Zhong
      Abstract: In the past decade, the number of rural-to-urban migrant adolescents in urban China has soared. Official criminal justice statistics point to their higher level of deviance compared to urban adolescents. This study examines whether rural migrant children are more delinquent than their urban peers in the school sample. It provides explanations for the gap by linking Hirschi’s social bond theory with the literature on migration in China. Moreover, it formally tests which elements of social bonds mediate the relationship between migrant status and delinquency. Based on a large-scale survey in Guangzhou involving 470 rural migrants and 838 urban junior high school students, our analysis shows that migrant adolescents engage in slightly more delinquent behavior and have weaker social bonds than local adolescents. Attachment to parents and school, commitment to education, and belief in law fully mediate the positive relationship between migration and delinquency. Such findings indicate that within China’s dual urban–rural structure, rural-to-urban migration can increase these adolescents’ exposure to risk factors that undermine their social bonds to conventional society and thus lead to higher levels of delinquency.

  • Estimating Size of Drug Users in Macau: an Open Population
           Capture-Recapture Model with Data Augmentation Using Public Registration
    • Authors: Tianji Cai; Yiwei Xia
      Abstract: Successful drug intervention policies rely on timely assessment of size of drug users and close monitoring of trend regarding drug abuse. Taking advantage of data collected by the Central Registration System for Drug Abusers of Macau (CRSDAM), this study applied open population capture-recapture models with data augmentation techniques to estimate the size of drug users and to identify influential factors on capture and survival probabilities from 2009 to 2014. In particular, the data augmentation technique was used to address missing data issues. The estimated size of drug users has been slowly declining from 2442 (95% Bayesian credible interval [BCI] 2042–2914) in 2009 to 807 (95% BCI 654–1000) in 2014 with a small fluctuation of 2251 (95% BIC 1950–2599) in 2011, and the estimated cumulative size of drug users is 6199 (95% BCI 5651–6873), which is correspondent to a prevalence rate of 1.20% of the current population aged 15 to 54. Although the estimated sizes of total, narcotic, and other drug users were declining, the size of stimulant users might be increasing. People who used narcotics as their first drug and who were reported by governmental agencies were more likely to stay in the registration system, while those who used needle injection were less likely to stay. Governmental agencies, higher education, and using needle injection were negatively associated with the probability of capture over time, while using narcotics as the first drug was positively associated with it.

  • The Role of “Problematic” and “Improved” Indicators of Risky
           Lifestyles in the Self-Control/Lifestyle Framework of Victimization Among
           Filipino Adolescents
    • Authors: Dan Jerome Barrera
      Abstract: Pratt and Turanovic (European Journal of Criminology, 13(1):129–146, 2016) argue that previous studies operationalizing risky lifestyles as mere “going out” (problematic indicators of risky lifestyles) were misspecified and that “improved” indicators of risky lifestyle (risky behaviors) would perform better than “problematic” indicators in models that explain victimization. This study examines these propositions by testing the self-control/lifestyle framework of victimization using the data from a random sample of Filipino high school students at a state university in Dumaguete City, Philippines. Results show strong support to Pratt and Turanovic’s claims. Self-control has stronger effects on improved indicators than on problematic ones. And, improved indicators have stronger effects than problematic indicators on property, violent, peer/sibling and sexual victimization. Moreover, the findings provide partial support for the self-control/lifestyle framework of victimization.
