Role Of Third Sector Organisations In Criminal Policy

The Role of Third Sector Organisations in Criminal Policy in the Nordic Countries and in Scotland

Maija Helminen, from the University of Turku, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Crime and Society,” under the title “The Role of Third Sector Organisations in Criminal Policy in the Nordic Countries and in Scotland”. Here is the abstract: New public management as a model of public sector reform has amounted to, inter alia, increasing partnerships between public and non-public agents and non-state actors have become important allies for the states in providing public services. Also, responsibility of preventing and controlling crime is extended to private companies and third sector organisations (TSOs). Involvement of TSOs in criminal policy, however, has a long tradition i.e. in prison aftercare and in crime victim support. Yet, there is a lack of knowledge about these TSOs, although due to intensifying cooperation between the state and non-state actors, this information is now increasingly important. Thus, by means of quantitative and qualitative methods, the aim of this study is to examine the roles of TSOs that operate in criminal policy in four countries; in what fields and ways do TSOs operate? What is their relationship to the official system of criminal policy? What meanings their work has to criminal policy?
