As of January 2018, this blog no longer active. Class in/justice was related to a research project on class inequality and crime control that I was doing in 2014-2017. I do still write about these themes, please check or follow my personal blog here.
On this blog, which started in October 2013, I wrote about: social class and inequality, crime control and criminal justice, urban policy, criminalization, criminology, media coverage of inequality, crime and policy, and, occasionally, personal experiences.
* analyses of current developments in criminal, social and urban policy (esp. in the Netherlands),
* thoughts and comments on (academic) books, articles and things I see/read/hear in the media,
* my own everyday experiences with social class and crime (auto-ethnographic notes), and
* (preliminary) insights from my current research on how criminal justice deals with class differences.
Comments are very welcome (especially because I write to think, test ideas, formulate hypotheses and ask questions, so please do not consider these writings as definite conclusions). You can also get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
