Abstract
This presentation is based on the author’s PhD thesis, which provides comparative empirical data on the regulation, representation and enforcement of nuisance. With respect to the regulation of nuisance, the study investigated whether courts in some selected European countries have examined the legality of nuisance regulations through fundamental principles of criminal law and whether (when needed) they have provided correctives to safeguard individual’s freedoms. The doctoral study has also addressed the representation of nuisance and its enforcement by comparatively examining the societal attitudes towards uncivil behaviour, and how nuisance is seen and tackled by the authorities, in different cities and cities’ areas. Additionally, the conducted research has examined the representations of regulated nuisance in the Flemish press and, specifically, how the press has represented it overtime, through the voices of whom, and whether criminologists have played any role in shaping such representations. The presentation will focus on illustrating the results of this doctoral study, on highlighting their impact on academic research, and on sketching directions for future research in the field.
