Article

The article provides an overview of the main interventions proposed in the South African National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS) as well as a discussion of the aims and principles of the strategy in the context of sociological/criminological theories of crime, philosophical theories of punishment, and patterns and strategies for controlling crime in Western societies. The main themes addressed are: crime and human rights, crime control vs. crime prevention, crime as security issue vs. crime as social issue, retributive justice vs. restorative justice, and community-based crime prevention and criminal justice.
