The anomic approach refers to one of the theories that have contributed most to explain the genesis of deviant phenomena. By virtue of its parsimony, flexibility and openness to the contamination, anomie theory remains a reference for theoretical and empirical analysis. Just think of how the rich functionalist analysis of Durkheim has been reformulated by Merton, with his insistence on the problematic nature of the discrepancy between the socially prescribed goals and the accessibility of socially accepted means in the Western world after World War II. This is a complex and fruitful legacy – in recent decades constantly enriched of new and original contributions – that invites to contextualize the security issues, in order to produce a realistic representations of dangers and diversify responses to crime, articulating them in relation to the peculiar situations.
