Contemporary Issues in Crime, Criminal Justice and Criminology in Greater China: Editors’ Introduction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This special issue Contemporary Issues in Crime, Criminal justice and Criminology in Greater China , was commissioned specifically as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the Association of Chinese Criminology and Criminal Justice in theUnited States (ACCCJ). The purpose of the special issue was seen as showcasing bothACCCJ members’ and others research contributions on crime, criminal justice andcriminology in the Greater China region. Our editors’ introduction has three parts.First, a short history of the development of ACCCJ, which fills a formal gap, sincethere is no current published historical backdrop to the institutional development ofthe association. Second, a necessarily brief analysis of the development of criminol-ogy in Chinese societies over the last decade (2010–2020). Finally, a contextualisationof the papers selected for this special issue. As editors, we wish to gratefully acknowl-edge the fulsome help and assistance of the journal editor in chief Dr Mark T. Palermo,Sage the publisher of the journal, and of course the authors who have worked hard onrevisions to manuscripts submitted via the peer review process.
