UWI launches new Caribbean Journal of Criminology
Published on June 26, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

MONA, Jamaica -- The Institute of Criminal Justice and Security (ICJS), based at the regional headquarters of the University of the West Indies (UWI), has announced the launch of its latest publication, the Caribbean Journal of Criminology.

The Caribbean Journal of Criminology is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal to be published annually. The Journal will promote critical examination of the complex and persistent crime and security problems in the Caribbean, maintaining a balance of theoretical and empirical articles. While it will pay special attention to the Caribbean region, it will remain open to relevant research that is conducted in other parts of the world.

This inaugural volume was edited by Dr Anthony Harriott, together with a team of associate editors from UWI as well as partnering universities in Austria and Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Harriott, professor of political sociology at UWI and director of the Institute of Criminal Justice and Security, notes in his editorial that “Caribbean countries experience many common crime problems. As researchers and policymakers grapple with these problems, the intention is that the Caribbean Journal of Criminology will make a useful contribution to better understanding these issues and even to problem solving”.

There are four articles and a book review in this first issue: two of the articles are primarily concerned with the explanation of crime and criminality and two with policy and policy-related issues. The research sites for the articles were Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

The Caribbean Journal of Criminology succeeds two Caribbean publications that focussed on the discipline of criminology - the Caribbean Journal of Criminology and Social Psychology and the Caribbean Journal of Criminology and Public Safety. Volume 1, Number 1 of the Caribbean Journal of Criminology is available only in hard copy; the next issue will be available in both print and digital format. For more information about the journal, including subscription information, email cjc@uwimona.edu.jm or icjs@uwimona.edu.jm
