Informal Criminal Justice
Ashgate, Jan 1, 2002 - Law - 193 pages
"The study of informal justice is increasingly important given calls for local governance of crime but exists in tension with increasing managerialism, diffusion of state power and globalization in criminal justice. This edited collection explores conceptual debates and provides contemporary research in the field of informal criminal justice, including chapters on paramilitary 'punishment' and post-ceasefire restorative justice schemes in Northern Ireland, post-apartheid vigilantism in South Africa, and informal crime management in England."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
