Knowledge Cluster

Methodological, Ethical and Theoretical Implications

Each Knowledge Cluster will look into the methodological, ethical and theoretical implications of our approach, which will then be integrated into this Knowledge Cluster:

(1) how can/should research on social practices and experiences and discourses/narratives be conducted;

(2) what is the impact of researching voices and practices with crime control professionals and vulnerable participants on the ethical stance of the criminological researcher;

(3) what is the impact of researching voices and practices on criminological theorisation, and more precisely on theories concerning procedural justice, legitimacy, surveillance and discretion, and human/children’s rights;

(4) what are the theoretical advances resulting from transcending traditional criminological domains?
