Understanding (serial) killers

What makes them tick? In this lecture I address questions such as what are the reasons that people become (serial) killers and how representative are they of social developments in the world? This is one of my areas of expertise. Lectures about serial killers, female serial killers, child serial killers and families
of serial killers.

The criminal within me

How close are we to becoming criminals, at least in our imagination? I provide a host of different examples from our daily lives and discuss with the audience the various aspects of criminality.

The Israeli police force and police forces around the world

What makes police forces special and how do they differ between countries in the world. I use a variety of examples from my visits to police forces around the world.
