"I think it is significant that we have developed a working relationship with the Max Planck Institute and an important aspect of this is having someone from the Sam Houston State University criminal justice program appointed to this editorial board," said Teske. "This expands and strengthens our international ties and commitments."
Teske has had a long-term teaching and research relationship with the Max Planck Institute in Freiburg, Germany. He and Professor H. J. Albrecht, director of the institute and editor of the journal, have worked together on previous projects and are now collaborating on a joint comparative project focusing on the prosecution of sentencing of hate crime offenders in Germany and the United States.
Professor Albrecht has been a Beto Chair professor and has visited the Criminal Justice Center on several occasions.
Teske was selected as a Humboldt Fellow in 1980 and spent a year at the Max Planck Institute establishing and carrying out the first large-scale victimization survey in Germany. For many years he directed the Texas Crime Poll, which surveyed Texans on their perceptions of crime and the criminal justice system.
