The Southernising Criminology Discussion Group aims to extend criminology’s gaze and horizons, raising awareness of distinct patterns and trends of crime, justice and punishment experienced in peripheral countries and contexts. In addition to discussing methodological and theoretical issues on doing research beyond the core countries, providing tools to think the Centre, the Periphery, and their relations, we also discuss the unequal relations of power and knowledge production between Global South and North and its effects in contemporary criminological knowledge.

Meetings happen on a Wednesday afternoon every other week (currently online), and will take the form of a presentation by an invited speaker. Students, staff, and faculty members are all welcome to join us. If you are interested in presenting your research or suggesting a particular topic to be discussed, do not hesitate to contact or
