Chief Editors' Introduction
The last edition of the journal for 2016 is truly global, with authors from Norway, United States, England, Australia, Mexico and Canada. Articles deal with issues in these countries as well as in Africa, China, Europe, South America and South Korea; many articles also have global relevance. This trend is consistent with the increasing internationalisation of knowledge that is occurring as a result of open-access free to publish and download publishing journals. While the ten articles vary greatly in focus, they fit with the journal’s emphasis on the intersections between crime, justice and social democracy.
