cjm 75: Perspectives from North America

Thursday, 5 March 2009
So it is not too difficult to come up with a list of initiatives that began in different parts of the continent; offender behaviour programmes for prisoners; zero tolerance policing and the broken windows theory of maintaining social order; drug courts; community justice centres; gang disruption programmes - these are just some examples. The contributors attempt to consider critically some of the policies and practices that have emerged from that continent and the merits of policy transfer to the UK and Europe. Following the historic election of Barack Obama and recent political change in Canada the themed section also seeks to explore the changing criminal justice landscape in those countries with contributions from some of their most well known criminologists.
