"Critical Criminology" is a theoretical framework for those interested in critical examinations of law, crime, and justice. American Society of Criminology divisions that adopt a critical perspective include Critical Criminology, People of Color & Crime, Victimology, and Women & Crime. Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences sections include Critical Criminal Justice, Minorities and Women, Restorative and Community Justice, and Victimology. Critical views on crime and justice are also shared by Cultural Criminology, Green Criminology, Convict Criminology, Rural Criminology, Vegan Criminology, Queer Criminology, "Uprooting" Criminology, and others with narrowed focus and/or alternate perspectives. This site attempts to highlight the work of these groups and more, with an emphasis on shared perspectives and goals.
