Path dependencies and criminal justice reform

Call for abstracts.

Thomas Guiney, Ashley Rubin and Henry Yeomans have issued a call for abstracts for a special issue of the Howard Journal of Crime and Justice on ‘Path Dependencies and Criminal Justice Reform: Investigating Continuity and Change across Historical Time’.

This issue – which arises out of a workshop held at the #HCNet virtual event last year – aims to explore the theoretical potential of ‘path dependency’ to explain institutional stability, incremental reform, and periods of rapid policy change in criminal justice.

Submit an abstract (300 words) and short biography (100 words) by 5 March 2021 to:;; and The organisers plan to hold a virtual symposium in November 2021 to discuss draft papers, ahead of submission for peer review in February 2022.

Further details are provided in the full call which can be viewed and/or downloaded below.
