Reserach programme in the field of criminology includes penology, victimology and criminal and procedural criminal law. The principal research areas within the described programme are the following: (1) analysis and synthesis of criminological theories ( sociological, psychological, sociobiological and anthropological); (2) causes of criminal and deviant behaviour; (3) criminal phenomenology (violent crime against persons, sexual violence, property crime, economic crime, drug abuse, organised crime, international crime, victimless crime, juvenile delinquency, domestic violence, political crime); (4) sociology of criminal law (societal reflection of the operation of criminal justice system, sociopsychological motives and structure of determinants of criminal law); (5) consideration of criminal law issues from the aspect of legal philosophy (a relationship between free will and and determinism , notions of responsibility and culpability, justification of criminal sanctions, the purpose of punishment , subjective attitudes towards objectively applied norms, construction of criminal offence, a notion of crime); (6) formal and informal reaction to disturbing , dangerous, harmfel and criminal behaviour; (7) theory of social control (family, school, workplace); (8) structural violence (non-deviant and "normalised" violence):(9) victimology (types and predisposition of victims, victim assistance, a role of victim in criminal justice system, victims of non-criminal violence, victims of particular forms of crime);(10) penology (corrections, the idea of rehabilitation); (11) criminal policy( preventation of crime and sentencing policy). Criminology draws its knowledge from all sciences dealing with man, society and culture. It is a science which is as theoretical as empirical, as well as inter-and transdisciplinary. Criminology as a science does not have one single paradigm which would predominate , but is rather fragmented and dispersed to different orientations, having there proper subjects, methods and aims.
