Abstract

The present issue of Contemporary Justice Review constitutes the first of three issues on the topic of penal abolition, assembled by us in an effort to bring the history and current character of penal abolition research to readers both familiar with and new to such work. The focus of this issue is ‘Penal Abolition and the State: Colonial, Racial and Gender Violences,’ and it is followed by another two issues, themed on ‘Penal Abolition Praxis’ (Critical Criminology 2018) and ‘Penal Abolition: Challenging Boundaries’ (Social Justice 2018)
