Abstract

The article presents a study about juvenile delinquency in Switzerland and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The study found that delinquency rates are significantly higher among youth in Switzerland than in Bosnia and Herzegovina, except for group fights, robbery and assault. It revealed that violent victimization rates are relatively higher in Bosnia and Herzegovina than in Switzerland. The authors believe that these findings show the importance of focusing more on the conditions of successful integration in the host country and less on cultural and ethnic aspects. Tables that depict the results of the study are also presented.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
