  • Call for Papers Special Issue | Green Criminological Dialogues: Voices from Africa


    Guest editors: David R. Goyes (University of Oslo, Norway) and Ifesinachi Okafor-Yarwood (University of St Andrews, UK)

    This special edition 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) criminological topics. Consequently, this special edition will be composed in its majority by articles authored by African authors, and will seek to have geographical and gender representativity.

    We issue this call for papers about a topic of free choice connected with terrestrial or marine environmental conflict, destruction and/or resistance in Africa.

    If you are interested, please send us an abstract of between 120 and 200 words as soon as possible to and (latest 1 July 2021).
