A new issue of International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy has been published.
This general issue publishes an eclectic mix of criminology research. Included in the issue, George Dertadian and Stephen Tomsen provide evidence of what constitutes the broader sense of security and safety experienced by (male) clients of the Medically Supervised Injecting Centre in Sydney, Australia. Bianca Fileborn, Elena Cama and Alison Young explore perceptions of safety when using taxi and rideshare services, including the gendered nature of safety. Matthew Mitchell and co-authors detail survey responses from trans and gender diverse (TGD) people with lived experience of criminalisation and lawyers with experience representing TGD clients. Jack Beetson, Pat Anderson and colleagues demonstrate the beneficial impacts of a First Nations community-controlled adult literacy campaign in six rural and remote communities in New South Wales, Australia. Other articles focus on cybercrime and cybersecurity and the experience of abortion patients and their healthcare providers during a COVID-19 lockdown in South Australia.
Policing is the topic of two articles: Wendell C. Wallace and Malisa Neptune-Figaro provide insights into the motivations for entering policing in Jamaica and, Anqi Shen and Dorothy Moses Schulz use a comparative lens to explore the trajectory of women’s advancement in policing in China and the United States (comparisons of Global North and South).
