Professor Ali Wardak from the Centre for Criminology at University of South Wales has been invited to join the Editorial Board of the recently established peer-reviewed journal International Criminology.
International Criminology is the official journal of the American Society of Criminology’s Division of International Criminology. It aims to be the premier outlet for peer-reviewed theoretical and empirical work on global, international, transnational, and comparative criminology and criminal justice. It is an interdisciplinary journal that welcomes work on a broad array of topics, including various types of crime, delinquency, deviance, substance abuse, explanations of offending and victimization, policing, courts, punishment and corrections, legal systems, and social justice, among others. It encourages submissions that push theoretical boundaries for issues salient to international criminologists and welcomes rigorous quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods empirical research. It aims to be geographically diverse in terms of the backgrounds of researchers and the subject matter of the research.
The journal will fill the need of providing a high quality journal for international, transnational, and comparative criminological research. Top-tier criminology journals tend to be heavily focused on American research, with extremely limited space allocated to international research. This journal aims to bridge the best of both worlds by being geographically inclusive without sacrificing rigorous scientific standards.
Also recently, Professor Ali Wardak wrote a short (journalistic) article that was published in the prestigious journal 'The Conversation'. In the article, Ali discusses how to widen access to justice in Afghanistan. You can read the entire article by clicking here.
