Seeking Justice in the 21st Century: The Contested Politics of Race and Gender
MetadataShow full item record
Applied to criminal justice, the contested politics of race and gender are about the relative importance we give to reducing the hard edge of criminal law and its effects on social exclusion and segregation, compared to ‘righting’ the inequality caused by crime and ensuring victim and community safety. The vision of a more just society will not be secured by making institutions of criminal justice larger or even smarter. Rather, that vision will be secured by policies in other domains, along with vibrant and active movements for social change.
