Contemporary Criminological Issues: Moving Beyond Insecurity and Exclusion tackles some of today’s most pressing social issues, advances cutting-edge theories and methods to make sense of these issues, and proposes policy responses that promote social inclusion and security. Contemporary Criminological Issues tackles some of today’s most pressing social issues, from the criminalization of Indigenous peoples to interpersonal violence, border control, and armed conflicts.
This book advances cutting-edge theories and methods, with the aim of moving beyond the scholarship that reproduces insecurity and exclusion. The breadth of approaches encompasses much of the current critical criminological scholarship, serving as a counterpoint to the growth of managerial and administrative criminologist and the rise of explicitly exclusionary and punitive state policies and practices with respect to ‘crime’ and ‘security.’
This edited collection featuring two books, one in English and one in French, includes important contributions to knowledge and public policy by eminent experts and emerging scholars.
