Crime and justice studies, as with much social science, has concentrated mainly on problems in the metropolitan centres of the Global North, while Asia and the Global South have remained largely invisible in criminological thinking. Routledge is now accepting proposals for a brand new research series which aims to redress this imbalance by showcasing exciting new ways of thinking and doing crime and justice research from the global periphery. Edited by John Scott and Russell Hogg or Queensland University of Technology and by Wing Hong Chui of City University of Hong Kong, the series provides an opportunity to illustrate the work of emerging and established scholars who are challenging traditional paradigms in the fields of crime and justice. Bringing together scholarly work from a range of disciplines, from criminology, law, and sociology to psychology, cultural geography and comparative social sciences, the series will offer grounded empirical research and fresh theoretical approaches and cover a range of pressing topics, including international corruption, drug use, environmental issues, sex work, organized crime, innovative models of justice, and punishment and penology.
