Symposium: A Pacific Criminology?


Kelburn Campus, Victoria University of Wellington

Pacific Criminology Image

In 2013 criminologist, John Braithwaite, called for a ‘scholarship on crime’ that identifies practices ‘of a more distinctively Pacific character’, which he entitled ‘Pacific Criminology’. This symposium seeks to answer this call.

Pacific ways of theorising crime, violence, justice, and peace are currently developing in a disconnected manner, hidden currents beneath the visible surface of Northern criminology.

Two-day symposium

This FREE symposium will offer a space for these disparate currents to surface and converge in productive and energising ways.

Chief Editors: Gisa Dr Moses M Faleolo (Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington) and Professor Miranda Forsyth (Australian National University).

Registrations are now open on Eventbrite
