Christian Pfeiffer

  • Against the violence
  • Why love and justice are our best weapons
  • Lecture

Contrary to impressions, people in Germany live quite safely when it comes to crime and violence. However, youth crime, domestic violence, criminal offences and political tensions in society present us with new challenges. By means of results and experiences from life and research, Christian Pfeiffer points to a new sense of community, to more love and justice, so as not to lose sight of the security and well-being of all.

Pfeiffer is one of Germany’s best-known criminologists. He was Minister of Justice in Lower Saxony and until 2015 Director of the Criminological Research Institute of Lower Saxony.
