Abstract

The social construction of crime and deviance among migrants in European countries has gained some relevance not only among young scholars but also among policy makers, civil servants, social workers, and the media. Deviance and crime among migrants are unfortunately far from being adequately be dealt with. On the contrary, these phenomena seem to run into a much more serious concern in the wake of the particular way they have been politically and socially understood. In addition to a substantial lack of research, the question as to how these issues have to be approached still remains without a serious answer. The few works available are mostly in criminal statistics, criminology, and law, this kind of research being carried out only in some European countries. This book considers many of the issues involved in an analysis of deviance and crime among migrants in Europe in both theory and methodology. Its purpose being to suggest a possible approach and some topics for further developing it.
