Contemporary Issues in Global Criminal Justice

Ed Johnston, Sophie Marsh (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Contemporary Issues in Global Criminal Justice provides a holistic analysis of modern criminal justice issues, encompassing the pre-trial, investigative, and post-conviction stages of criminal justice in legal settings across the world. The contributors acknowledge and examine the vast array of challenges in global criminal justice, from the role of the International Criminal Court to policing, the integration of technology, and how marginalized groups, such as sex workers and those with addictions, are treated in the courts. With contributions from scholars in England and Wales, New Zealand, Croatia, Spain, the Netherlands, Canada, and The Republic of North Macedonia, this book is not limited to one jurisdiction, and highlights that criminal justice is very much a global issue in a state of crisis. From policing to the courts, it is in urgent need of reform. Without a competent criminal justice system, justice does not exist. This book would be of interest to scholars in the legal, criminal justice, and criminology fields.
