“AJCJS is the peer-reviewed official journal of the African Criminology and Justice Association. It is published approximately two times a year (spring and fall). The journal will publish scholarly essays, reviews and research notes on all issues relevant to criminology and justice systems of interest to Africans at home and the African Diaspora globally. Central to the aims of the journal (though not exclusive) is the publication of innovative theoretical, methodological and policy interventions that deepen the understanding of how to prevent or repair the crimes against humanity that people of African descent have suffered and how to reverse the crisis of over-representation that people of African descent continue to suffer in correctional institutions around the world.”
