- August 27, 2021AssociationNews / NewsCriminologists attempt to document patterns of crimes in order to understand their nature and the extent. Nevertheless, the public opinions claim that crimes are random acts. In fact, in recent past criminological inquiries have been shown that the crimes are not randomly emerged among people and groups. These Criminological researches on the patterns of crimes emphasized the relationship between criminal behavior along with time, space, and social structure. Hence, the Criminology has paid close attention to a variety of contextual and structural dimensions that underlie the basic patterns of crime. In feudal Sri Lankan society, murders were unpremeditated manifestations of violence in disputes over land, women, or honors due to a person. But, with the open economy policy of Sri Lanka, the Western context has been created outstanding changes in the culture, as well as people, have changed their traditional goals and means on behalf of class competition in Sri Lankan society. Consequently, by today Crime is a severe problem of the country. Hence, we decided to reserve our Guest Lecture Series, No 03 to discuss the crimes trends and patterns in contemporary Sri Lanka. Therefore, we invited Mr. Sajeewa Meddewattha who is Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), currently serves as Executive Director of Police Academy and former Director of Police Narcotic Range to discuss the crimes Trends and Patterns in Contemporary Sri Lanka. Thus, this intellectual discussion will be benefited for all university students, academics, and the general public to understand “How is the Crimes Trends and Patterns in Contemporary Sri Lankan society?” All are welcome to virtual discussion @ 6.30 pm on 3rd September 2021 via Zoon technology.
