'Inequalities in a Diverse World'
BJC Virtual Issue (2016): 3 (1)

Peter Squires & Simon Winlow


This special edition follows our recent practice of compiling a special virtual ‘archive collection’ of articles from the British Journal of Criminology relating, directly or indirectly to the themes of the 2016 British Society of Criminology Conference. This year’s conference will be held within the conference facilities of Nottingham Trent University but the event is hosted and directed by the BSC National Executive and, especially, its conference sub-committee (aided by the Nottingham Event Team).

The overarching conference theme ‘Inequalities in a diverse World’ is intended to reflect the intersections of criminalisation, victimisation and inequality which ebb and flow in a diverse and changing world. The 2016 conference will provide opportunities for criminologists to participate in an open, reflexive and critical way, with the various themes of the conference itself.

The conference theme has guided the choice of this 2016 British Journal of Criminology special virtual edition. The articles selected are viewed as being important contributions in their own right, but they are included here because they especially reflect the significance of global inequalities and diversities in reproducing criminalisation and victimisation, moreover they have each taken criminological debates forward.

This set of articles is intended to contribute to, and engage with, debate and discussion about the criminological significance of global inequalities and diversities that we hope will take place during the proceedings of the 2016 British Society of Criminology conference as well as encouraging engagement with the resources within the British Journal of Criminology electronic archive.
