New from the British Journal of Criminology

Friday, 16 December 2016

The January 2017 edition of the British Journal of Criminology is out now.

In a free-to-download article, Hannah Bowes and Nicole Westmarland of Durham University write about their research on the rape of older people. Among their findings are that older victims of rape usually know the perpetrator, who is generally younger than they are.

Other articles in the January edition include:

  • Philippa Tomczak on the role of voluntary sector organisations in extending punishment and control of those with criminal convictions¬†
  • Joseph Michalski on the relationship between prison violence and the struggle for status among prisoners
  • Frances Pakes and Katrine Holt on recent deals between national governments allowing for those convicted in one country to serve their prison sentence in another.
