This book examines the politics of harm in the context of palm oil production in Colombia, with a primary focus on the Pacific coast region. Globally, the palm oil industry is associated with practices that fit the most conventional definitions and perceptions of crime, but also crucially, forms of social and environmental harm that do not fit strictly legalistic definitions and understandings of crime. Drawing on rich field-based data from the region, Mol contributes empirically to an awareness of the constructions, practices, and the lived and perceived realities of harm related to palm oil production. She advances criminological debate around ‘harm’ by putting forward a theoretical and analytical approach that redirects the debate from a central concern with the academic contestedness of harm within criminology, towards a focus on the ‘on-the-ground’ contestedness of palm oil-related harm in Colombia. Detailed analysis and arresting conclusions ensure this book will be of great interest to students and scholars in the fields of Green and Critical Criminology, Environmental Sociology, and International and Critical Development Studies.

The first comprehensive collection of its kind, this handbook addresses the problem of knowledge production in criminology, redressing the global imbalance with an original focus on the Global South. Issues of vital criminological research and policy significance abound in the Global South, with important implications for South/North relations as well as global security and justice. In a world of high speed communication technologies and fluid national borders, empire building has shifted from colonising territories to colonising knowledge. The authors of this volume question whose voices, experiences, and theories are reflected in the discipline, and argue that diversity of discourse is more important now than ever before. Approaching the subject from a range of historical, theoretical, and social perspectives, this collection promotes the Global South not only as a space for the production of knowledge, but crucially, as a source of innovative research and theory on crime and justice. Wide-ranging in scope and authoritative in theory, this study will appeal to scholars, activists, policy-makers, and students from a wide range of social science disciplines from both the Global North and South, including criminal justice, human rights, and penology.

Violence is a serious public health problem. The number of violent deaths tells only part of the story, and many more survive violence and are left with permanent physical and emotional scars. Violence also erodes communities by reducing productivity, decreasing property values, and disrupting social services. In recent years, scholars have broadened their definitions of violence beyond the realm of interpersonal harms such as murder, armed robbery, and male-to-female physical and sexual assaults in intimate relationships, to include behaviors often ignored by the criminal justice system, such as human rights violations, racism, psychological abuse, state terrorism, environmental violations, and war. Guided by this broader definition of violence, this handbook offers state of the art research in the field and brings together international experts to discuss empirical, theoretical, and policy issues.

Im Herzen der Krise, die Europa derzeit zu zerreißen droht, steht ein Paradox. Nicht die Kluft zwischen den wirtschaftlich starken Ländern des Nordens und den laxen Ökonomien des Südens oder die Einwanderung treiben die Spaltung voran, sondern – absurd genug – die gemeinsame Währung, der Euro. Warum? Analytisch brillant und fesselnd lenkt Yanis Varoufakis den Blick zurück auf die hochdramatischen wirtschaftspolitischen Wendepunkte des 20. Jahrhunderts: von der Aufgabe des Goldstandards 1973 über die Machtkämpfe zwischen Deutschland und Frankreich um Dominanz in der Eurozone bis zu den fatalen Folgen des Börsencrashs von 2008. Dass die Europäische Union als Bürokratie-Konglomerat im Dienste der Großindustrie entstand, ist kein Zufall; dass ihrer Währung demokratische Kontrollmechanismen fehlen, dagegen eine Katastrophe. Seit Amerika seine Rolle als Stabilisator der Weltwirtschaft nicht mehr spielt, zeitigen die Konstruktionsfehler des Euro immer dramatischere Folgen. Sollen auch in Zukunft die Schwächsten den Preis für die Fehler der Banker zahlen? Ein neues politisches Konzept ist nötig, um die Krise zu lösen und die europäische Idee zu retten.
