THE INFLUENCE OF GAMBLING ON CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION OF GORIŠKA Print E-mail

Nevenka Podgornik , Andrej Kovačič

Abstract
The discussion of social consequences of gambling includes also the influence of gambling on the occurrence of criminal activities. The start-point of the present article is based on criminological theories which explain causal-consecutive connection between crime and gambling. We performed an examination of relevant studies about the existence of correlation between gambling and crime and a comparison of statistical data about criminality in the region of Goriška with the regions where there is no gambling or it is present in a minor extent.

Keywords: gambling, criminality, region of Goriška, Slovenian regions

DETECTION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS IN SLOVENE SECONDARY SCHOOLS Print E-mail

Ksenija Domiter Protner

Abstract
The article presents the research the intention of which is to determine the sensitivity of Slovene schools for the recognition of domestic violence exposure of adolescents and to investigate the practice and difficulties of Slovene secondary schools in detecting domestic violence and the resulting actions thereof. The results show that there are big differences between Slovene secondary schools in detecting domestic violence exposure of adolescents. The fear expressed by the teachers and school counsellors concerning their responsibility for intervening in a family is also important because it seems a significant part of the decision-making about reporting domestic violence. The majority of school counsellors interviewed feel helpless after making a report; this could also be related to respondents’ prevailing dissatisfaction with the actions of other institutions. In the procedure of reporting domestic violence a quarter of teachers and school counsellors do not always have the support of the management.

Keywords: domestic violence, adolescent, secondary school, school counsellors

HUMAN RIGHTS IN TIME OF GLOBALIZING SECURITY Print E-mail

Gregor Garb , Damir Črnčec

Abstract
Diversity of processes in the contemporary international environment and the attendant effects, including security risks bring rapid changes in society. On the other hand, new opportunities and challenges are characterized by globalization of security and modern security paradigm, triggered by the overwhelming number of processes within existing systems of national security that modify the state's role in ensuring the safety of its citizens or residents.

In the contemporary security paradigm appears a tendency to provide individual security or deviation to the concept of ensuring security of the individual. Security is becoming a fundamental civil right which requires the synthesis of a wide range of state and social policies, including respect of human rights.

International terrorism, as one of the security risks, against which many countries have accepted anti-terrorism laws, which intervene in the free exercise of individual rights and that leads to an imbalance between freedom and security.

Keywords: Human Rights, Civil Rights, Globalizing Security, Individual Security.
