Hybridity in the Canadian Craft of Criminology

John Braithwaite            

 

Canada is a distinctive and rich contributor to criminological thought. As
in many things, it benefits both from its proximity to powerhouses of the
discipline in the United States and from distancing itself from them.
Distancing is needed because criminology is enmeshed within a pathological
disciplinary structure of social science research invented in the United
States and Europe. Canada embraces more hybridity than most national
criminologies, though it still falls short in its openness to insights from
the South and East of the globe. An important part of the hybridity it does
embrace in greater measure than other western societies is wisdom from its
Indigenous peoples. Restorative justice, private policing, corporate crime,
and crime-war are used to illustrate strengths of Canadian hybridity. These
are Canadian conversations in which Carol LaPrairie engaged evocatively.

Whither Restorativeness? Restorative Justice and the Challenge of Intimate
Violence in Aboriginal Communities

Jane Dickson-Gilmore   

 

The issue of partner and family violence in Aboriginal settings has long
presented unique challenges for communities and criminal justice.
Dissatisfaction with conventional legal responses, and especially with
mandatory charging policies whose implications for victims and families are,
at best, mixed, has initiated a shift toward restorative justice, which is
perceived to be more culturally appropriate and respectful of Aboriginal
families. However, there are significant challenges arising from issues of
community, culture, and context that must be seriously engaged before
restorative justice can offer viable, safe, and sustainable alternatives to
Aboriginal communities struggling with violence. Drawing upon years of work
with Cree communities, this article explores the realities of intimate
violence and restorative responses, arguing that there is additional work to
be done before restorative processes can be applied to intimate violence in
these communities. DOI: 10.3138/cjccj.2014.S02

Sentencing, Aboriginal Offenders: Law, Policy, and Practice in Three
Countries

Samantha Jeffries, Philip Stenning         

 

The statistical “over-representation” of Aboriginal people in the criminal
justice systems (especially prisons) of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand
is not disputed. Sentencing is often perceived as a point in the criminal
justice system where, potentially, the problem of Aboriginal
over-representation could be addressed. During the last 20 years there have
been robust discussions in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as to whether
(and if so how) Aboriginality should be taken into account in sentencing.
Reviewing and comparing the trajectories of these debates within the three
countries during the last 20 years, in terms of legislative provisions,
court decisions, and innovative sentencing practices, suggests that although
the problem of over-incarceration is viewed similarly, sentencing responses
have varied between nations, but have been equally unsuccessful in actually
reducing rates of Aboriginal imprisonment. DOI: 10.3138/cjccj.2014.S03

CJCCJ Online

The Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice publishes quarterly
coverage of the theoretical and scientific aspects of the study of crime and
the practical problems of law enforcement, administration of justice and the
treatment of offenders, particularly in the Canadian context. Since 1958,
this peer-reviewed journal has provided a forum for original contributions
and discussions in the fields of criminology and criminal justice. The CJCCJ
emphasizes original scientific research. Recent issues have explored topics
such as the Youth Criminal Justice Act, wrongful convictions, criminology
research in Canada, and punishment and restorative justice. The Canadian
Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice appeals to anyone needing to
keep abreast of recent criminological findings and opinions: justice
administrators, researchers and practitioners and academics.
