This paper explores historical predecessors and contemporary contexts of crime prophecy. It places the question of crime risks of proposed European Union regulatory and legislative proposals in the context of ‘Impact Assessment’ of legislative proposals by the European Commission and also in the wider context of scrutiny by the European Parliament and (possibly) by national parliaments of Member States. From this context is deduced a requirement that, in order to be fit for its purpose, assessment methods must be easy to communicate and simple to apply.
