Launch of Racialized Correctional Governance: The Mutual Constructions of Race and Criminal Justice by Dr Claire Spivakovsky on Monday 8th April

Dr Claire Spivakovsky’s first book, Racialized Correctional Governance: The Mutual Constructions of Race and Criminal Justice was officialy launched on Monday 8 April 2013. The book was launched by Professor Mary Bosworth, Oxford University, and attended by academics, service providers and public servants from state and local government.

Racialized Correctional Governance examines problems in the relationship between criminology and racialized issues. The book questions current models for discussing issues of race in criminal justice systems and asks why a comprehensive theory of race and criminal justice has yet to develop in the discipline. It takes into account the nature of problems facing racialized peoples in criminal justice systems, the developments and tensions in criminological theory and practice, as well as the scope of racialized criminal justice issues and where they occur. Examining the shortcomings of current discourse, Racialized Correctional Governance gives an account of how race, criminal justice and criminology are interrelated.
