Synopsis

After the collapse of the Berlin wall in 1989 and disintegration of the Soviet Union, scholars focused on the problems of legal transitions within the newly emerging democracies. Two decades on, these states are in `post-transition' conditions; having undergone and continuing to experience political, economic and constitutional upheavals to varying degrees. This book provides an interdisciplinary perspective on this largely unexamined topic.











Part I of the book sets the scene with a socio-historical overview and a theoretical chapter; both of which contextualise the book within current debates and provide the theoretical direction of the book as a whole. The later chapters set out contrasting perspectives and consist of themed essays on individual legal systems, investigating these through approaches ranging from socio-legal study to political economy. The book aims to refine important directions for the comparative conceptual study of criminal law policy and processes of criminalisation in emerging democratic states. The result is a significant contribution to the understanding of this subject in the fields of criminology, law, philosophy and political science.











The book will appeal to academics, policy-makers and practitioners who are attempting to grapple with the area of "transitions" in the fields of criminology, law, philosophy and political science. As a distinctively interdisciplinary text, it brings together analysis of both the social processes of creating (and abandoning) criminal law and a philosophical reflection. The book provides a comprehensive and critical analysis which points to future directions in criminalisation in the emerging democratic states of Eastern Europe.

Kay Goodall is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Law at the University of Stirling. Her main research interests at the moment lie in conceptualising sectarianism, racism and "hate" in criminal law, and new conflicts among the strands of discrimination law. Margaret Malloch is a Senior Research Fellow in the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research at the University of Stirling. Research interests cover a wide range of topics within the field of crime and social justice but key areas include: gender and justice, criminal justice responses to social issues, critical criminology. Bill Munro is a Lecturer in Criminology at the School of Applied Social Science at the University of Stirling. Research interests cover a wide range of topics within the field of critical social theory and critical criminology: key areas include: transitional justice, criminalisation and theories of punishment.
