The purpose of this article is to present the results of the pilot research regarding the perception of cybercrime in Slovenia.
The study focused on the research of the perception of cybercrime among the general public, as well as the members of the law enforcement agencies.
The development of information and communication technologies critically influences all aspects of our lives, and consequently the characteristics of crime have adapted to the new form of operation in the virtual world. Cybercrime is the new way of breaking the law, and in order to implement successful preventive strategies it is of crucial importance to understand the perception of the general public, as well as the perception of the members of law enforcement agencies regarding cybercrime. The pilot study was performed on a smaller group of individuals (approximately half were the representatives of the general public, while the rest were the representatives of law enforcement agencies) in the form of in-depth interviews. The findings of the pilot research were alarming, since the majority of the interviewees greatly differentiate between certain forms of crime performed in the cyberspace as opposed to the same form of crime performed in real life i.e. the act of stealing, piracy in particular, is unacceptable in the real world and at the same time only natural in the virtual world. Furthermore, the pilot research displayed serious lack of awareness regarding different forms of cybercrime among the general public, as well as the members of law enforcement agencies, and consequently also poor understanding of legislation pertinent to cybercrime. Based on the results of the pilot research it is evident that it is of crucial importance to raise the awareness and understanding among the general public and increase the knowledge of the members of law enforcement agencies regarding cybercrime and its consequences in our everyday life.
The results are not generalizable due to the small group of interviewees. Consequently, future research will include a larger group of interviewees and will combine both in-depth interviews as well as questionnaires.
The article represents a useful source of information for individuals working in this field as well as the general public. Furthermore, it represents the basis for further research of the field.
The article deals with the issue of the perception of cybercrime in Slovenia and exposes the critical issues related to the difference in the perception of a similar act of crime in the real life as opposed to the virtual world.

Politeness in Online Discussion Forums: a Comparison Between English and SlovenianUrška Knehtl
, 2019, magistrsko delo
Opis: The main objective of this master’s thesis is to compare the use of politeness in English and Slovenian and to compare politeness that occurs in the selected topics of online discussion forums. Another objective is to analyse which politeness strategies are applicable in the selected online discussion forums and to determine why some of them are not applicable. The master’s thesis presents an analysis of 4 online discussion forums and 2 specific topics (health, relationships). 20 discussions were chosen for the analysis, which is based on Brown and Levinson’s Politeness Theory (1987). Positive politeness strategies, negative politeness strategies and off-record politeness strategies are determined in the analysis and the findings in English and Slovene forums are compared. The language of online discussion forums, the place of conversational computer-mediated communication, is comparable to oral communication. The findings suggest that the discussions of the online discussion forums therefore offer a great potential to analyse the use of politeness in a language. A comparison of the findings provides an insight into the use of politeness in English and Slovenian in the online discussion forums and the differences between them. The analysis shows that Brown and Levinson’s theory is applicable to both languages, which is not the case for all strategies. Several differences were found in the use of politeness, which is more often used in English.
