By: Dr. Lic. Antonio Silva Esquinas; Jorge Ramiro Pérez Suárez

This article offers an analysis of innovative new ethnographic methods which have come about in recent times during our research studies. We start by contextualizing the state of ethnographic research in Spain, with a focus on its usage by Spanish Criminologists before discussing “instant ethnography” and “auto-ethnography”. Lastly, we use field notes from our ethnographic studies on youth nightlife environments in Magaluf – a touristic zone famous for its party atmosphere - and at various Spanish raves and discuss the advantages and limitations of these particular tools....

En la Ciudad del Positivismo Perdido : Lecciones aprendidas para una criminología urbana, Volume Ano 6, Vol. XI Aug-Dec 2018: Lecciones aprendidas para una criminología urbana

By: Lic. Dr. Jorge Ramiro Pérez Suárez; Antonio Silva Esquinas

In the present paper we make an approach to understanding how post-positivism, liquidity and capitalism have affected through its neoliberal current the schools of thought in Social Sciences and their research methods. This approach is based on three distinctive realities such as: the phenomena of political refugees, the homeless and cyberporn so that we can observe the current limitations in research matters in relation to certain phenomenologies and we will propose the tackling of said issues by using a more urban criminology and mixed methods....

Análisis e Implicancias del Diseño Constitucional de la Justicia de las Comunidades Nativas y Campesinas y su Relación con la Justicia Ordinaria: : El caso peruano, Volume Ano 6, Vol. XI Aug-Dec 2018: El caso peruano

By: Dr. Gino Rios Patio

Analysis and implications of the constitutional design of the justice of the native and campesinas communities and its relationship with ordinary justice: The peruvian case Justice in its legal configuration, specifically criminal, is a cultural product that should not be distanced from its ethical justification, due to its anthropological character, which entails the most felt aspiration of equity that has the person and the community. The political constitution of a multiethnic and multicultural state, such as Peru, recognizes the jurisdiction of the native and peasant communities, as a special jurisdiction, which integrates it into ordinary jurisdiction, just as civil, labor, Of family, commercial, criminal, among other specialties, although that jurisdiction has the philosophical, anthropological, sociological and historical bases necessary to be considered a jurisdiction of exception, as it is the case of the military and arbitral jurisdictions, both for respective reasons Sui géneris. In the consequent coordination between the ordinary jurisdiction and the jurisdiction of the native and peasant communities, it appears an a...

Lucha Contra la Violencia en Mexico : Algunas reflexiones críticas sobre su percepción y combate , Volume Ano 6, Vol. XI Aug-Dec 2018: Algunas reflexiones críticas sobre su percepción y combate

By: Idalia Patricia Espinosa Leal; Jose Zaragoza Huerta

The objective of this paper is to identify the deep and criminological causes that generate the crime unleashed in Mexican society, from its most outstanding beginnings to the present day, with the aim of proposing public policies to prevent, control and diminish it. The method chosen for the investigation of this article is the documentary, books, newspapers, interviews, documentaries and surveys carried out by national and international non-governmental organizations, as well as governmental organizations. As you will see the issue is not recent appearance, society has been affected for a little more than a decade and it seems that has no brake. The violence has overstepped the governmental limits losing control, reason why the whole society must act from its trench, contributing a grain of sand to improve the situation....

En los últimos años, la sociedad mexicana se ha visto afectada por diversos factores criminológicos, ocasionando una serie de trastornos sociales como: la inseguridad en las calles (Arellano, 2014), la desconfianza en las autoridades, la desigualdad de oportunidades, es decir, un deterioro al Estado de Derecho. En México la etapa más cruda de la violencia, inicia en el período del Presidente de la República Mexicana, Vicente Fox Quesada, tras haberse desatado una ola de violencia debido al narcotráfico y otros delitos, en junio de 2005 el presidente pone en marcha el “Operativo México Seguro”, el cual consistía en enviar efectivos federales a lugares especialmente conflictivos, desplegar militares en las calles e intentar depurar las policías locales y estatales; desde esa fecha hasta nuestros días continuamos con este desgarrador problema, tema que como sociedad a todos nos afecta (El Universal, 12 de junio de 2005)....

Rasgo antisocial y afecto positivo y negativo en población penitenciaria de México : Antisocial trait and positive and negative affect in the penitentiary population of Mexico, Volume Ano 6, Vol. XI Aug-Dec 2018: Antisocial trait and positive and negative affect in the penitentiary population of Mexico

By: Lic. Dr. Ferrán Padrós Blázquez; Víctor Edgar Soria Benítez

The objective of this article is to study the relationship between the symptomatology of Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) and the levels of positive and negative affect in Mexican inmates. A sample of 65 male inmates was used, subsequently divided into 2 subsamples, one composed of 28 participants with probable ASPD and the other of 37, composed of inmates with high probabilities of not meeting the ASPD criteria. The diagnosis of ASPD was estimated based on the Aluja ETAPA scale, which assesses the presence of ASPD symptomatology, positive and negative affect was evaluated using the PANAS scales. Significant correlations were found between the ETAPA score and positive affect (low and negative) and negative affect (moderate and positive). In addition, inmates with probable ASPD showed a higher level of negative affect and less positive affect than the group with probable non-ASPD. The results obtained coincide partially with what was found in previous studies where psychopathy was evaluated. The present study supposes a first approximation on the relation between the positive and negative affects and the ASPD in Mexico....

Decadence (English Version)

By: Rosario Volpi

Late at night or at dawn, when dreams are shattered, there is someone who opens his eyes and he restless moves his sweaty head in the pillow. It is as if a sword hurt him by treachery and blood gets coagulating immediately, leaving a permanent scar in the mind of the man for all the days to come. “For a week I did not dream anymore, but every holy morning just opening my eyes I'm relive the same scene of that my last nightmare - my sister Miyabi had disappeared after one of the many fights with my father. I'm running out of the house on the street in an undershirt and panties, it was pitch dark, after a few hundred meters I stopped next to a lamppost. I had shortness of breath, I looked around in search of Miyabi, but there was none, only papers, cans and other trash. I looked down and saw my feet bare and bleeding, I started to feel pain, I raised her right foot and saw that, embedded in the sole of the foot for two or three millimetres, there was the needle of a syringe, someone had thrown it to the ground after being injected with the drug. I grabbed it and pulled out slowly, while blood flowed along the outer edge of the need...

Iran For Dummies : Iran, Before The Bullets, Missiles And Body Parts Start Flying: Iran, Before The Bullets, Missiles And Body Parts Start Flying

By: Jeffrey J. Prager; Jeffrey J. Prager, Illustrator

An insiders view of life in Iran, including Jews, Muslims and Christians who all live together in relative harmony.

Iran’s men are having trouble dealing with the brave new world that’s imposing itself on their bedrooms: an unnoticed tide of sexual change that could prove far more important in shaping the country’s cultural and political values than the 2009 democratic elections. “It is still widely accepted,” Negar Farshidi writes, “that a groom can make his marriage conditional on the bride remaining a virgin, and cancel it if it turns out she isn’t. Traditionally, a blood-stained sheet was produced after the wedding night as evidence of an intact hymen, but nowadays many men and their families ask for a ‘virginity certificate’ in advance.” Similar practices are common throughout the entire world. The majority of newlyweds still want their brides to be virgins in most countries. But an official Iranian study, Farshidi records, has determined that more than half of all young people in Iran have had premarital sex – which means those certificates probably aren’t worth a whole lot. Iran’s powerful clerical establishment embraced the technological products of modernity, like computers and the internet, while railing against its cultural ma...

El siguiente trabajo investigativo está dedicado a ilustrar la Victimología Femenil desde una perspectiva colaborativa con mis nuevos estudios en Trabajo Social Clínico.

What is an ETF or ETN? : Guide to Exchange Traded Funds and Notes versus Mutual Funds

By: Steven Kim

An exchange traded fund (ETF) is a communal vehicle for investment, as is an exchange traded note (ETN). This primer profiles the duo of instruments and compares them to mutual funds. The relative merits of the securities are explained, along with the grave risks both blatant and subtle. The serious investor has to juggle the crucial factors in order to thrash out a robust program of investment....

As a supple tool for investment, the exchange traded fund (ETF) has enjoyed explosive growth since its debut on the stock market. To a lesser extent, the story is similar for the exchange traded note (ETN). The popularity of these vehicles stems from the ease of investing in a diversity of assets at low cost. An ETF is an investment pool whose shares are listed on a bourse. For this reason, the securities can be bought and sold just like any other stock by way of an equity account at a brokerage firm. From a historical stance, the traditional form of communal investing lies in the mutual fund: a commercial trust whose shares are offered for sale directly to the general public. In other words, an investor deals with the operator of the collective pool in procuring and unloading the units. By contrast, the shares of an ETF are traded amongst the actors within the stock market. This primer begins by profiling the exchange traded fund. One topic deals with the similarities and differences between an ETF and a mutual fund. Another issue involves the contrast between active and passive modes of investment in tending a portfolio o...
