Anthropological criminology 2.0: Ethnographies of global crime and criminalization

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftLederForskningfagfællebedømt

This introduction seeks to outline a contemporary anthropological approach to crime and criminalization, an "anthropological criminology 2.0." This anthropological criminology distances the subfield from its social Darwinist connotations and instead etches itself clearly onto a social and political anthropological tradition. In doing so, the introduction moves from Malinowski's initial functionalist and localist approach to present-day political and global orientations. It offers five distinct propositions for anthropological criminology to engage with in the future, which we believe are essential for future anthropological studies of crime and criminalization. With these as guidelines, we hope to fully revive a much-needed dialogue between criminology and anthropology. As we shall see, anthropological and ethnographic insights are currently in demand as global, yet poorly understood, forms of crime are developing alongside ever cruder and more amplified reactions to them.
