Criminology in Focus


About the Series

This series offers a space for a ‘short format’ book series which showcases and puts the spotlight on new research in criminology. We are interested in books that fit the ‘short-form’ model; for example: theoretical think pieces, developments in criminal justice policy, paradigm shifting innovations in the fields, a compelling case study that would be of interest to an international readership. We would like to attract ‘big names’ as well as up-and-coming scholars; all books should speak and contribute to international criminological debates and conversations.
