Criminology and the violence(s) of northern theorizing: A critical examination of policy transfer in relation to violence against women from the global North to the global South

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter considers the implications of the violence done by the criminological embrace of Northern theorizing for the questions of policy transfer deemed to address violence against women. This focus is adopted in recognition of the significant policy activity introduced in this area in recent years, both within and beyond the global South. Australia, a key criminal justice jurisdiction within the global South, has looked largely beyond its own borders to interventions introduced in the North when determining new directions for policy targeted at the prevention of and responses to violence against women. This chapter examines the consequences of this gaze with a specific focus on pro-arrest policies and domestic violence disclosure schemes.
