Title: Collecting Data in Romania for the Lincs Project: Practical Challenges and Possible Solutions
If we look at the international studies performed during the past years, we could see that Romania has not been involved or has provided little data regarding criminal offences and criminal justice in general. It is also the case for the European Sourcebook of Crime and Criminal Justice Statistics. This presentation explores the causes for such absence, which can also be encountered during the development of the LINCS project: lack of relevant data, significant differences in collecting data, denial to provide them for specific studies etc. The presentation also aims to present the solutions found in order to obtain however the necessary information for the good performance of the project.
