State Crime Journal
‘State crime is an indispensable journal for anyone concerned with all forms of official wrongdoing, which should be for all of us’ – Richard Falk (Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law and Practice Emeritus, Princeton University and Distinguished Honorary Fellow at ISCI)
State Crime is the first peer-reviewed, international journal that seeks to disseminate leading research on the illicit practices of states. The concept of state crime is not confined to legally recognised states but can include any authority that exerts political and military control over a substantial territory (e.g. the FARC). The journals focus is a reflection of the growing awareness within criminology that state criminality is endemic and acts as a significant barrier to security and development. Contributions from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives are welcomed. Topics covered by the journal include, torture; genocide and other forms of government and politically organised mass killing; war crimes; state-corporate crime; state-organised crime; natural disasters exacerbated by government (in)action; asylum and refugee policy and practice; state terror; political and economic corruption; and resistance to state violence and corruption.
