About the journal

Justice, Power and Resistance is an international, peer-reviewed journal promoting critical analysis and connecting theory, politics and activism. Working towards social justice, state accountability and decarceration, 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. Originally based within the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control, the journal invites academics, practitioners and activists to think critically about the concepts of justice and power, and what the implications of these are for the lives of people most affected by social harms.
