The second section presents abstracts from criminological research focused on the anticorruption standards for transition economies; the Slovenian response to organized crime; safety and crime prevention collaborations in local communities; and on young women’s sexual abuse in Germany and Slovenia. The abstracts in the third section focus on security and safety issues, including research on the ability of parliament security to handle current security threats and risks in modern countries; the dilemmas involved with defining criminal justice and security studies in Slovenia; young people’s perceptions of private security in Slovenia; and the role of formal and informal actors in national security policymaking in Slovenia. The fourth section contains research abstracts on the topic of legal studies, covering such issues as positive discrimination; the impact of the European Union law on the Slovenian tax-law system; and on the legal-economic position of the Republic of Slovenia as a European Union member state. The fifth section focuses on economic research and includes abstracts on the distribution of the tax burden and on production efficiency.
