CJC Members organise panel on decolonisation and criminal justice at the European Society of Criminology Conference 2023

CJC co-Director Ana Aliverti co-organised (with Máximo Sozzo, Universidad Nacional de Litoral) a panel at this year's European Society of Criminology, held in Florence, Italy, on 7th September. The panel was focused on contributions from the book Decolonizing the Criminal Question: Colonial Legacies, Contemporary ProblemsLink opens in a new window (2023, Oxford University Press), which was co-edited by Aliverti and Sozzo together with CJC co-Director Henrique Carvalho and CJC member Anastasia Chamberlen. The panel, which hosted presentations from a number of the book's contributors (see list below), was highly popular, and led to engaging and thought-provoking discussions. The book, which is available Open Access online, offers a serious engagement with the complex issue of decolonisation and its urgency in the areas of criminal justice, criminology and penology.
