Routledge International Handbook of Criminology and Human Rights (Hardcover)
About this item
This book brings together a body of work across a wide range of criminological topics and perspectives, which is united by its critical application of human rights law and principles. It provides an historic benchmark within the discipline and a foundation on which future teaching and research about human rights and criminology can be built. Bringing together international contributions, this book breaks down pre-existing divisions between domestic and transnational criminology, between the theoretical and empirical, the particular and the universal, the legal and the socio-political, and between scholarship from the Global North and South.
Edited by internationally renowned scholars, this book offers a comprehensive overview of the intersection of criminology and human rights, with sections covering law, regulation and governance; community safety and social justice; policing and human rights; the justice process; and human rights and penalty.
