IN-CJ Webinar – Decolonisation, Cultures and Communities in Criminal Justice

IN-CJ Webinar – Decolonisation, Cultures and Communities in Criminal Justice

The International Network for Criminal Justice is hosting an international webinar on the topic of Decolonisation, Cultures and Communities in Criminal Justice. De Montfort University is among many universities that has recognised that our approaches to learning, teaching and research commonly assume western, European or Anglo-American perspectives, which can represent an incomplete or even distorted understanding of topics and the ways in which they might be explored.

This is the first of two seminars in which we will be hosting a discussion with an international panel, who will bring perspectives from other countries, precisely in accord with the aspiration to decolonise.

The programme includes presentations from colleagues in UK, Malaysia and Australia. Each presentation is followed by questions from the audience. ‘In answering these questions, the presenters are joined by a panel, chaired by Rob Canton (Professor in Community and Criminal Justice, DMU).


  • Kaushika Patel (Interim Deputy PVC for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Deputy Dean for the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences, DMU).
  • Jason Pandya-Wood (Dean of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Nottingham, Malaysia).
  • Brian Stout (Dean of Arts and Social Sciences and Professor of Social Work, Western Sydney University).
