Special issue: Green Criminological Dialogues: Voices from Africa


Guest editors Annette Hübschle (University of Cape Town), Ifesinachi Okafor-Yarwood (University of St Andrews), Nigel South (University of Essex) and David Rodríguez Goyes (University of Oslo) have curated a set of articles, with emphasis on Southern Africa, to continue the project of criminological knowledge democratization.

This is the third special issue of the IJCJSD seeking to engage in global ‘Green Criminological Dialogues’, succeeding ‘Voices from the Americas and Europe’ (Goyes, Sollund and South 2019) and ‘Voices from Asia’ (Goyes et al. 2022). The focus for this collection is Africa, a continent of enormous diversity—in Indigenous peoples and local communities, environments, non-human species, and resources—that has fuelled the dynamics of exploitation, conflict, crimes, and harm for centuries.
