New Double Issue: Volume 9 Issue 4 2020


A new issue of International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy is now available. This final issue for 2020 is another double issue and includes diverse articles from scholars in the UK, Italy, Canada, Australia and the US.

In two parts, the first part is a special issue: State Violence. Practices and Responses.

Guest Editors Tobia Fattore and Kate Gleeson (Macquarie University, Australia) have curated a collection of papers that highlight the benefits of interdisciplinarity for understanding the complexities of state violence. The authors include legal and political scholars, criminologists, historians, social workers, sociologists, anthropologists and literary theorists, who, by adapting their disciplinary lenses and international perspectives have provided a fulsome understanding of modes of state violence.

The second part contains general articles and two book reviews: Jace Valcore reviews Queer Histories and the Politics of Policing and Anna Sergi reviews Mafia Violence: Political, Symbolic, and Economic Forms of Violence in Camorra Clan
