Episode 54 – Criminology, Desistance, Collaboration & Creativity

10 – Criminology Matters – In this conversation, Shadd Maruna and Fergus McNeill reflect on what they learned from collaborating in making the documentary film ‘The Road from Crime’ and from the associated Desistance Knowledge Exchange project.

They also stray into wider discussions about creative, sensory and public criminologies, musing on how researchers can and should engage with others in pursuit of justice.
