Cross-Cultural Issues in Psychology, Crime and Law

Psychology, Crime and Law is seeking submissions for an upcoming special issue on Cross-cultural issues in psychology and the law, which will be edited by Stephane M. Shepherd, PhD.

Culture, race and ethnicity are critical concepts that can impact decision making within psycho-legal contexts. It is important for researchers and practitioners alike to identify and unpack these issues to improve our understandings and promote better justice outcomes across diverse populations.

We are seeking submissions that explore issues of culture, race and ethnicity in the criminal justice system, including, but not limited to:

  • the impact of culture, ethnicity and race on interactions with the criminal justice system
  • the impact of culture, ethnicity and race on clinical and forensic assessment;
  • The impact of culture, ethnicity and race on legal decision-making;
  • The impact of programming and intervention strategies with diverse justice-involved populations.
  • The experiences of minoritized populations who come into contact with the criminal justice system
  • Offending and desistance pathways across diverse populations
  • Cultural sensitivity in psycho-legal practice
  • Racial disparities and bias in criminal justice settings
  • and more.

Authors are encouraged to consider intersecting identities such as gender, sexual orientation, (dis) ability, class, religion and immigration status when considering their work for submission. A variety of submissions are welcome including empirical research, theoretical papers, commentaries and practice pieces. Inter-disciplinary research submissions will also be supported.
