Changes in legislation and practice regarding child protection in general and especially delinquent child have led to a significant rise in the numbers of studies and research in the field, bringing to the forefront new challenges to criminal  justice and social protection/child welfare professionals. SPECTO 2012 unites researchers, teachers, administrators and policy makers from social work, sociology,  psychology, applied social sciences and education as well as specialists in criminal justice. SPECTO 2012 Timisoara will focus on the latest scientific developments in the promotion of alternative sanctions  and special treatment for delinquent child protection.   Conference events include plenary lectures, symposia, workshops,  and poster sessions showcasing new research in the field. This Conference will address disciplinary, interdisciplinary and cross-national challenges in the social sciences,  and in particular the relationships of science to society. Topics will explore the challenges and priorities for the prevention of juvenile delinquency and also the nature of  sanctions that can be applied to delinquent children, considering connections between them and causes for committing  criminal acts.  Key themes addressed by the Conference include psychological, juridical and social approaches to violence among adolescents and juvenile delinquency and the main institutions involved in prevention, treatment and reintegration of  delinquent children. This Conference aims are to explore, in an interdisciplinary spirit, linkages between different areas of research,  teaching and practices in crime prevention and the quasi coercive treatment of the delinquent child as well as the  resilience of them.We look forward to welcoming you to Timisoara, the capital of the Banat region from West of Romania.  We look forword to welcoming you to Timisoara, the capital of the Banat region from West of Romania.
