Zur Bedeutung individueller Wahrnehmungs- und Handlungsmuster in der Rechtsanwendung. Das Beispiel der Verwaltung von Prostitution


Vorheyer, C (2006). Zur Bedeutung individueller Wahrnehmungs- und Handlungsmuster in der Rechtsanwendung. Das Beispiel der Verwaltung von Prostitution. Zeitschrift für Rechtssoziologie, 27(2):275-288.

Abstract

The article deals with the application of law in the public administration of prostitution regimentation. A focus is placed upon the administrative personnel's patterns of perception and action, which are identified via conducting and analysing qualitative interviews with experts. Through exemplary case studies, the relevance of administrative personnel's patterns of interpretation and occupational orientations, as well as options for action and discretion in their application or non-application of the law, are highlighted. It consequently becomes clear that law in action depends not only upon law itself, but also upon how administrative personnel interpret and apply it.
