International Center for Research on Delinquency, Marginality and Social Relationships

Established in 1993 by an agreement between the ISC and the University of San Sebastian, the Centre was created to promote research and development about migrations of populations, mainly in Europe, and their connections with marginality and delinquency. The Centre also provides training for students and young researchers from the European countries.

Since January 2006 the DMS International Centre is directed by Professor César San Juan.
