Qualitätsmanagement in der Kriminalprävention

Many subject-terms in crime prevention are not used consistently whether that is within single European countries or between them. However, the increasing integration of Europe requires a coherent set of crime prevention terms. The Beccaria Glossary offers definitions of crime-prevention subject-terms in several languages.

During the first phase of the glossary’s development the definitions can be offered in German and English. An upgrading of the glossary through the addition of other European languages is planned. The Beccaria Glossary is continuously updated.
