Rubric: CRIME PREVENTION: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND SOCIAL PRACTICES

Annotation: The article is aimed at the evaluation of the topical issues concerning the use of foreign crime prevention practice in the Russian Federation. This is an international issue, being important for Russia and for foreign states as well. The modern world is such, that those holding positive crime prevention experience and those using it are both interested in making their best achievements generally accessible. This selfless interest (unlike the interest in technical issues) is, first of all, explained by the fact that in the age of developed technology and super-mobility the criminals from different states and continents are capable of developing their criminal activities, while facing virtually no obstacles. At the same time there are a lot of unresolved theoretical and practical issues regarding international cooperation guarantees. Taking into consideration the above-mentioned conceptual provisions, this article is addressed to both Russian and foreign readers. In particular, the article concerns the theoretical prerequisites for the reception of foreign crime prevention practice. The author discusses the priority directions for Russia concerning reception of the foreign crime fighting experience. These priority directions include white-collar crime and drug crime. The mechanisms for crime prevention in Russia include participation of citizens and non-governmental organizations in revealing and prevention of crimes (social capital). The mentioned goals have been achieved both in their historical and modern dimensions via the criminological connection to the classical and unfairly forsaken sources, such as the Great Yasa of Genghis-Khan, the Decrees of Tsar Peter the Great, and the financial legislation of the USA, which was drafted in order to overcome the Great Depression. The issues of international cooperation of Russia with foreign states have a positive perspectives even now, which is not the best time for such matters. This is explained by the fact that we have more uniting factors and interests, than dividing ones. In order to support this beneficial position the author provides a range of proposals and recommendations for the further development of the international cooperation in the sphere of fighting criminality. The author also used the results of his collective scientific research experience with the foreign colleagues, as well as his experience in the administrative bodies of the International Criminal Law Association and the International Criminology Society.
