Annotation: This booklet presents summaries of the eight research reports published by Finland's National Research Institute of Legal Policy in 2001.
Abstract: One report presents the findings of a study that examined the security threat to Finnish companies operating in Russia and the Baltic countries from 1995 through 2000. It notes that although the security situation for Finnish companies improved in the latter years of the 1990's, this was due less to the law enforcement efforts of the host countries than to the efforts of the Finnish companies to identify and protect themselves against the security threats that continued to exist. A second research report focuses on a study that identified and analyzed the basic factors that underlie the creation and shaping of the effects of a law reform. A third research report involved a study of the causes of the extremely high homicide rates in Finland in the years 1905-32, followed by a report on research that examined the frequency of part-time work by ninth-grade students, the number of their weekly working hours, and the relationship between work/work intensity and various types of problem behaviors. A report on a literature review focuses on published studies of homicide trends and patterns in Finland in historical (1950-99) and comparative perspective. Other research profiled in this booklet addressed the criminal career and socioeconomic status of drug offenders, crime and criminal justice in Finland, and the victims of crime in Estonia from 1993 through 2000.
