A new issue of International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy has been published.
We are extremely pleased to be publishing another double issue which includes a special issue on Death Penalty Politics. In this special issue, guest editors Mark Finnane, Mai Sato and Sue Trevaskes bring together international scholars, lawyers and abolition advocates to share their research of the death penalty, its practice and its abolition. While the majority of death penalty research has emanated from and focuses on the USA, well over 90 per cent of global executions occur in Asia, which lags behind the global trend towards abolishing the death penalty. Abolition may now be widely embraced as a norm of international human rights law, but its establishment as a comprehensive and irrevocable fact remains elusive.
The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy is an open access, peer reviewed journal that seeks to publish critical research about common challenges confronting criminal justice systems around the world. The Journal publishes four issues per year, has no APCs and uses Creative Commons to licence articles – making criminology research accessible to all.
