The works in this series strive to generate new conceptual and theoretical frameworks to address the legal, organisational and normative responses to the challenges that diversity and intersectionality present to criminal justice systems. This series aims to present cutting edge empirically informed theoretical works from both new and established scholars around the world.
Drawing upon a range of disciplines including sociology, law, history, economics, anthropology, and social work, the series encourages different approaches to questions of mobility, social inequality, and exclusion with a cross-section of theorists, empiricists, and critical policy researchers. It will be key reading for scholars who are working in criminal justice, criminology, criminal law and human rights, as well as those in the fields of gender and LGBTI studies, migration studies, race and ethnic relations, social stratification, refugee studies and post-colonial studies.
We welcome book proposals that address any of these issues, or related topics, for an inclusive and interdisciplinary series. Please contact series co-editor, Patricia Faraldo Cabana ([email protected]) or Nancy Wonders ([email protected]) to discuss potential book projects. To submit a proposal, contact the Editor, Lydia de Cruz ([email protected]).
