International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy

Winner of the Rosa Del Olmo Prize for Best Paper

In early 2023 the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy editorial team established the Rosa del Olmo Prize to be awarded biennially for the  article(s) that, in the editors’ opinion and based on the recommendations of a panel of experts, most contributes to innovative thinking in the development of criminology beyond Western scripts.

The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy celebrates the inaugural winner of the Rosa Del Olmo Prize:

Marya Al-Hindi, author of

Criminalising Palestinians: History and Borders in the Construction of the Palestinian Threat

The winner was announced with the release of the latest issue (Volume 12[4] 2023). A special introductory essay about the Prize and the winner is included in this issue

A short list of eligible articles was compiled to include full articles published between July 2021 and July 2023 that best exemplified a review of criminology outside of traditional Global North perspectives (a total of 84 articles). Judges were selected from the current editorial board by Co-Chief Editor Dr David Goyes. The Journal thanks the judges for their perspectives in this valuable initiative:

Dr Moses Ma’alo Faleolo, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Professor Marília de Nardin Budó, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil

Emeritus Professor Nigel South, University of Essex, United Kingdom

All members of the judging panel were invited to nominate three eligible papers in order of merit.
