Call for Book Chapter Proposals

Almost 85% of the world’s population live in what might be termed the ‘global south’, comprising three continents . A large proportion of the world’s police and around half of the world’s 10.2 million prisoners are detained in the continents of the global south, across Asia, Africa, Oceania and South America (Walmsley, World Prison List (10th Edition). Yet mostly criminology has concentrated on problems of crime and justice in the Global North.  The division of the contemporary world into North and South loosely approximates  common ways of talking about global divisions. These familiar binaries all expressly privilege ideas of temporal succession: ‘developed’ and ‘developing’, ‘industrial’ and ‘industrializing’, ‘first’ and ‘second’ worlds and ‘the third world’.  In other words, the global North designates the normative benchmark to which the rest of the world will naturally aspire.
