    The notion that animal abuse and domestic violence are related has been existing for centuries. Recent studies in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands report evidence for this relation. In the western world, more than 50% of families have pets. They are often valued as members of the family. It is obvious that pets can be victims of family violence as well. The relation between animal abuse and domestic violence has many manifestations. Abused women reported violence against their pets, reported that their children abused the pets. Abused children, especially severely abused and/or sexually abused children, are more often than other children animal abusers. Animal abuse is often related to other violent behaviour or severe criminal acts later in life. Besides, animal abuse is an early diagnostic marker for psychopathology. Animal abuse is always a signal of a problematic situation. A greater awareness of the possible link between animal abuse and domestic violence could contribute to saving men, women, children and animals from violent situations.

    After a brief analysis of concepts of culture, conflict and conflict resolution, this contribution discusses how mediation and its practices are perceived in different cultures and countries. It appears that mediation is one of the most common forms of conflict resolution applied across a diverse range of cultures. In this respect, the author raises the question whether this also implies that there is a shared understanding of what mediation is or should be.

Access_open Nussbaum’s Capabilities Approach: In Need of a Moral Epistemology?

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden Martha Nussbaum, Capabilities Approach, moral epistemology, objectivity, residues of justice, Bernard Williams, political moralism
Auteurs Mr. Iris van Domselaar
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Although Nussbaum’s “Capabilities Approach” (CA) clearly expresses a commitment to objectivity, this article argues that this commitment is rather ambiguous due to the conception of public reason it endorses. In particular, the CA cannot account for an objective justification of public reason, given certain characteristics of public reason. As a result, the CA jeopardizes the substantive aim it has set itself: to provide an objective justification for public choices regarding human capabilities and their specifications.

Criminogeniteit in Amsterdam

Een nieuw concept, een monitor en een index

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Veiligheid, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden criminogeniteit, criminogeniteitsindex, criminogene factoren, risicofactoren
Auteurs Hans Boutellier, Ruben David Scholte en Merijn Heijnen
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In criminology a lot of attention is paid to risk factors in the development of criminal behaviour. It is also not uncommon to speak of criminogenic factors. In the reported research project a monitor of relevant risk factors on an aggregated level (city, city councils and boroughs) was developed. In addition the data were combined into a so-called criminogenity index for the city of Amsterdam. The article discusses the development and results of the monitor and index. It elaborates on an article which was published earlier (TvV, 2007 (6) 2), but can be read as a stand alone article.

Nieuwe wegen in het terugdringen van recidive?

Tijdschrift PROCES, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden recidive, gedragsinterventies, reclassering, desistance, wraparound care
Auteurs Prof. dr. Jo Hermanns
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Verreweg de meeste plegers van een misdrijf vallen in herhaling. Criminaliteit lijkt voor de meesten van hen een essentieel kenmerk van hun levensloop te zijn. Het ombuigen van zo’n levensloop is geen sinecure. Nieuwe ontwikkelingen in praktijk en onderzoek wijzen de weg. Voor iedere individuele gedetineerde dient er een uniek ‘project’ te worden uitgevoerd, waarin gedragsinterventies gecombineerd worden met het voorzien in materiële en psychosociale randvoorwaarden voor een ander bestaan. Dit type projecten vraagt een andere samenwerking van de huidige keten. Eenheid van regie én continuïteit door de gehele keten van strafrechtspleging, zorg en begeleiding heen zijn sleutelwoorden.

Wie werkt?

Over het vakmanschap van de reclasseringswerker

Tijdschrift PROCES, Aflevering 3 2009
Trefwoorden professionele ruimte, effectieve professional, reclasseringswerker, werkalliantie, feedback
Auteurs Drs. Anneke Menger
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In dit artikel wordt de vraag gesteld naar een zinvolle verbinding tussen de ervaringen en vragen van reclasseringswerkers en de ontwikkelingen in de wetenschap. Een mogelijke sleutel is meer onderzoek te doen naar effectieve professionals, als aanvulling op onderzoek naar effectieve interventies. De vraag naar effectieve professionals wordt besproken aan de hand van vier thema’s: de reclasseringswerker en de combinatierol van controleren en motiveren, de algemene factor van effectiviteit, de werkalliantie en kenmerken van de effectieve professional. Het artikel concludeert dat onderzoek naar deze factoren niet alleen de effectiviteit van het reclasseringswerk zal vergroten en onderbouwen, maar ook de professionele ruimte, die nodig is voor gemotiveerde reclasseringswerkers, zichtbaar maakt en kan onderbouwen.

Case study: the international CSR conflict and mediation

Supply-chain responsibility: western customers and the Indian textile industry

Tijdschrift Nederlands-Vlaams tijdschrift voor mediation en conflictmanagement, Aflevering 2 2009
Trefwoorden corporate social responsibility, international CSR conflicts, supply-chain responsibility, CSR
Auteurs Tineke Lambooy
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In 2008, Ruud Lubbers led a mediation process to resolve the conflicts which had arisen between two Dutch campaigning organisations, various Indian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and labour unions, two Dutch internet providers, an Indian clothing producer and a Dutch jeans brand. The mediation took place at the request of the disagreeing parties and the Dutch and Indian governments. The conflict related to corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards followed by the textile companies.In this contribution the effects of campaigning and litigating in issues concerning CSR will be examined. Limiting the analysis to CSR conflicts in the textile industry, the author will reflect on these new types of international conflicts in a globalising world and will share her view on appropriate ways to avoid them or, ultimately, to (re)mediate them if necessary.This contribution informs the reader about the events in India and the Netherlands which led to the escalation of the conflict. It provides an overview of the conflict resolution procedures and elaborates on the outcome of the ‘Lubbers Mediation’. The applicable legal and soft law labour standards are compared as well as the parties’ communication strategies. Lastly, this case is contrasted with other CSR conflicts in the textile industry, revealing a hidden conflict.

Psychisch welbevinden van gedetineerde vrouwen in Nederland

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Criminologie, Aflevering 1 2009
Trefwoorden detentie, vrouwen, psychische gezondheid, gevangeniservaringen
Auteurs Dr. Anne-Marie Slotboom, Drs. Barbara Menting en Prof. dr. mr. Catrien Bijleveld
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Incarcerated women have specific characteristics, needs, health problems, and have different experiences and adjustment problems to prison than men. Based on a survey of 251 female inmates, this paper analyses the association between imported factors, deprivation factors and psychological complaints. Depressive complaints, irritability, and risk of self-harm were all predicted through examination of both imported and deprivation factors. Psychological problems before detention was the most significant imported factor predicting psychological complaints. The most important deprivation factors were treatment by staff and other inmates and environmental stress. Posttraumatic stress complaints were predicted only by imported factors (traumatic events and psychological problems before detention). Next to the importation and deprivation factors, this paper suggests inclusion of a third group of factors: relations with children and family, which may be an independent group of factors in addition to the factors related to the prison environment.
