Just Interests: Victims, Citizens and the Potential for Justice contributes to extended conversations about the idea of justice – who has it, who doesn’t and what it means in the everyday setting of criminal justice. It challenges the usual representation of people victimized by violence only as victims, and re-positions them as members of a political community. Departing from conventional approaches that see victims as a problem for law to contain, Robyn Holder draws on democratic principles of inclusion and deliberation to argue for the unique opportunity of criminal justice to enlist the capacity of citizens to rise to the demands of justice in their ordinary lives.
This edited volume celebrates the significant contributions of Peter Grabosky to the field of Criminology, and in particular, his work developing and adapting regulatory theory to the study of policing and security.
The role of Geographic Information Services (GIS) in governance and regulation and CartoGIS Services supporting research and education

It will examine the GIS and mapping resources available to academics in CAP through CartoGIS Services. Finally, it will explore the ways that GIS can be used to engage with issues and answer questions at a range of spatial and temporal scales.
Under President Duterte, the rule of law is fast eroding, as the three pillars of his strongman rule show. First is his centerpiece program, the war on drugs, the rock on which his strongman rule stands. Annihilating suspected drug users will not solve the problem of illicit drug use. But that is not the point of Duterte’s war. It is meant to intimidate and sow fear in the public, a means of control. More than 4,000 have been killed in what the police claim are “legitimate” operations. Cases questioning the constitutionality of the drug war are pending in the Supreme Court which is dominated by pro-Duterte justices.
