Criminology, Crime and Politics Before and After 9/11
Hogg, R (2007) Criminology, Crime and Politics Before and After 9/11. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology, 40(1), pp. 83-105.
Criminologists have mostly followed the criminal law in adopting an apolitical concept of crime. They paid limited attention to both political crime and the political power to criminalise. The article traces efforts to redress this since the 1960s. It nevertheless remained a minority concern, mostly of critical criminology. Yet crime has been politicised in various ways by other developments, also examined in the article. The events of 9/11 have crowned the emergence of crime as a strategic security issue posing a challenge to criminology to engage with politically inspired crime and its control.
