Balkan Criminology at University of Oxford’s Faculty of Law
The University of Oxford has set up a discussion group on “Southernising Criminology” and is organising a series of invited lectures that deal with the unequal relations of power and knowledge production between the Global South and North and its effects in contemporary criminological knowledge. The 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.
Prof. Dr. Anna-Maria Getoš Kalac, Head of the Violence Research Lab and Balkan Criminology, has been invited to share her experience and expertise on criminology and crime research in the Balkans and in its unique European setting. One of the highlights of her lecture will be the presentation of first findings from the Balkan Homicide Study (forthcoming 2021 in the Springer Briefs in Criminology).
