Call for Abstracts: Special Issue International Journal of Law, Crime and Justice

Call for abstracts for the special issue "The politics of (in)formality in criminal procedures"

International Journal of Law, Crime and Justice (peer-reviewed, open access possible)

 

The tension between formality and informality is intrinsic to the implementation of criminal law. Criminal procedures in fact always happen on a continuum between formality and informality, where the different actors involved (police officers and other street-level bureaucrats, prosecutors, judges, experts, defense lawyers, etc.) continuously perform and negotiate (in)formality. In this special issue, we aim to explore these “politics of (in)formality” in different criminal law settings and from different disciplinary perspectives.

 

 

Please send your abstract (max. 300 words) to the guest editors Kei Hannah Brodersen (hannah.brodersen@unine.ch) and Damian Rosset (damian.rosset@unine.ch).

Deadline for submission of abstract: 1 November 2021 (24:00h CEST).

 

A selection will be made soon thereafter. The journal submission deadline is 31 March 2021.

New Article by CJC members Ana Aliverti, Henrique Carvalho, Anastasia Chamberlen and Máximo Sozza 'Decolonizing the Criminal Question'

CJC members Ana Aliverti, Henrique Carvalho and Anastasia Chamberlen along with Máximo Sozza, professor of Sociology of Law and Criminology and Director of the Program on Crime and Society at the National University of Litoral (Argentina) have published a new Article 'Decolonizing the Criminal Question' in Punishment and Society.

This article examines this debate surrounding the impact of colonialism in the past and present of institutions and practices of crime control, both at the central and peripheral contexts, as well as in the production of knowledge in the criminological field.

It offers a critical account of key themes and problems that emerge from the intimate relationship between colonialism and punishment that directly challenge the persistent neglect of these dimensions in mainstream criminological scholarship. The authors aim to foreground the relevance of this relationship to contemporary enquiries. They highlight that decolonization did not dismantle the colonial roots of the cultural, social and political mechanisms informing contemporary punishment. These colonial roots are still very much part of criminal justice practice and are thus also central to criminological knowledge productions.
