New Double Issue


A new issue of International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy  is now available.

We are extremely pleased to be publishing another double issue which includes a special issue on Fashion Justice. In this special issue, guest editors Alice Payne and Rowena Maguire (QUT, Australia) bring together scholars that examine multiple perspectives on the numerous injustices experienced in the ways garments are produced, consumed and disposed of within the globalised fashion system.

The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy is an open access, peer reviewed journal that seeks to publish critical research about common challenges confronting criminal justice systems around the world. The Journal publishes four issues per year, has no APCs and uses Creative Commons to licence articles – making criminology research accessible to all.

John Scott (Chief Editor); David Rodríguez Goyes (Editor); Avi Brisman (Book Editor); Marília de Nardin Budó (Book Editor), and Tracy Creagh (Journal Manager)
