Justice, Power and Resistance is a unique peer-reviewed international journal which publishes high-quality, original essays, book reviews, and scholarly and creative narratives alongside providing a platform for the voices of activists, individuals and groups confronted by state power. The editors welcome theoretical and ethnographic studies from interdisciplinary perspectives including sociology, zemiology, geography, law, history, criminology, penology, philosophy, social policy and socio-legal studies from scholars and activists. The journal is primarily a vehicle to make accessible and advance challenging research and scholarship that can be utilised to critically inform contemporary debates and policies. It is also committed to facilitating and enhancing communication and collaboration across critical and radical networks. Consequently, it welcomes short papers, campaign updates, poetry, personal reflections and (auto)biographical accounts from academics and non-academics alike. The scope of the journal includes a range of topics including the critical analysis of social harms; theories of state power; authority and legitimacy; gendered and racialised violence; the politics of social control; austerity, poverty and marginalisation; the legacies of colonialism, neo-colonialism and post colonialism; penal policies and penal practices; harms of the powerful; criminalisation; comparative studies and internationalist standpoints; abolitionist perspectives; social movements engaged in direct struggles of resistance and contestation; interventionist strategies and radical alternatives promoting human rights, social justice and democratic accountability.
