GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (Mar. 4, 2022) – Cüneyt Gürer, Professor of Transnational Security Studies, recently published an article entitled “Crime and Violence Studies in the Immigration Field: Interactions between Disciplines and Emerging Concepts,” in the Journal of Ethnic and Cultural Studies. Dr. Gürer and his coauthor, Ali Unlu, used bibliometric analysis to evaluate the literature on immigration, crime, and violence to find out how these concepts are studied across disciplines. They discovered that the most studied concept amongst all disciplines is violence, followed by gender and crime with the combination of migration, immigration, and immigrants. They found that criminology is the top field producing most of the studies in the field followed by public health-related research. And, their findings suggest that migration, when it is connected to crime and violence, is considered an individual- and social-level challenge requiring the attention of experts understanding criminal and deviant behavior, as well as experts from public health.
