Call for Papers: Green Criminological Dialogues: Voices from Africa


Submissions are welcomed for a special issue concerned with green criminology issues in Africa.  

Guest editors  want to engage in a dialogue with original thinkers from the African continent. This special issue is a consolidating step in furthering the dialogue between the North and the South, which positively exploits the Southern endogenous knowledge around ‘green’ (and marine/‘blue’) criminological topics.

Guest Editors: David R. Goyes (University of Oslo, Norway), Annette Hübschle (University of Cape Town, South Africa), Ifesinachi Okafor-Yarwood (University of St Andrews, UK) and Nigel South (University of Essex, UK).
