  • Peacebuilding Strategies in Nigeria’s Ethnic Space: Specific Focus on
           Conflict-Spot in Kaduna Communities

    • Authors: Kazeem Oyedele Lamidi; Oluseyi Idowu Olaleye, Bisiriyu Abiodun Taleat
      Abstract: This paper contextualised the subject matter and its strategies by providing insights on the development, peace and conflict in the Nigerian environment; explicating the peace and conflict impact assessment; exposing the causal factors for communal conflict; and analysing the strategies across the main tribes in Nigeria with specific focus on Kaduna communities. It drew largely on secondary sources whose contents were explicitly analysed for this contextual discourse. It found out that there were internal mechanisms put in place towards engendering peace building across the major tribes in Nigeria. It enlisted obtainable peacebuilding strategies in Kaduna communities. It concluded that a remarkable feature of the peace building strategies is that it does not only aim at conflict resolution, but also ensures peaceful co-existence scenes and harmonious relationships between and among conflicting people or communities. However, the latter still remains challenging owing to a low human development index and civic orientations.

  • The Dearth of Democracy in South Africa: ANC’s Factionalism, State
           Capture Inquiry, and Riots

    • Authors: Munhuweyi Kenneth Takudzwa
      Abstract: The 2020 Covid 19 pandemic came with good and bad news across the globe. The South African government had its most challenging moment, which found intra-party elite cohesion over state capture inquiry and corruption triggering riots in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal. In South Africa weather they will be democratic deepening or decay will be unveiled in the article proffering for alternative solutions to resolve future conflicts in the country. Nevertheless, the article did not dispute the institutional democracy in South Africa as one of the African leading democratic state. The research used the socio-economic and political psychological analysis to unveil the July 2021 riots in South Africa. An ethnographical approach was utilized to enrich the study phenomenon, gathering data through documentary review, and multimedia platforms.

  • Ensuring Victims’ Participation in the Criminal Justice of
           Bangladesh

    • Authors: Khandaker Farzana Rahman
      Abstract: It is seen that if the main actors in a criminal justice framework are to be identified, the most commonly identified would be the alleged, his legal representative, the prosecutor and the judge. In our current legal system, the victim appears to be one of the overlooked and disregarded parties, when in reality they should be considered a vital stakeholder in the criminal justice process to secure justice. Due to adversarial legal system in Bangladesh the burden of proof lies upon the prosecution or victim in a criminal proceeding. There is hence no comprehensive law securing rights and participation of victims in criminal justice system though few supports exist for them. In accessing the justice system, victims face numerous challenges and the plight of crime victims continues to go from bad to worse. In this background, the research relies on qualitative methods to explore their status, participation and challenges in the justice system and lastly recommends how to make the justice system victim oriented.

  • Bystander Attitudes to Hearing Family Violence: An Australian Survey

    • Authors: Elspeth McInnes
      Abstract: Male violence against women and children is a pernicious global problem responsible for a high burden of injury, illness, and premature death across societies and cultures. Socio-cultural beliefs, attitudes, and practices underpin the conduct of perpetrators, targets, bystanders, and responding service providers, including police, health, and social welfare services. Bystanders’ willingness to act to help targets of family violence is a key dimension framing the social environment of using violence against family members. An anonymous internet survey of 464 Australians, mainly women, identified that around three-quarters of respondents would respond if they heard a cry for help from a nearby home. Most said they would call the police. The key deterrents to taking action were fears for their safety and their confidence that calling the police would lead to effective action. Despite their willingness to act, most believed that the typical Australian public would not do so. They attributed reluctance to take action to bystanders’ fears for their safety, beliefs that it was not their business, and not wanting to get involved. Respondents wanted more financial, housing, and legal support for victims of violence to end abusive relationships. Nationally consistent FDV laws, changes to media reporting, and school-based education were nominated as key strategies to prevent and reduce family and domestic violence.

  • Experiencing Relative Deprivation as True Crime: Applying Cultural
           Criminology to the Qanon Superconspiracy Theory

    • Authors: Deirdre Caputo-Levine; Jacob Harris
      Abstract: This essay builds upon earlier studies of the QAnon superconspiracy theory by applying cultural criminology as a framework to investigate the significance of QAnon and the events that facilitated the rise of the superconspiracy and the associated political movement. QAnon has had multiple impacts that should be of interest to criminologists. In the United States, QAnon was involved with the 2020 election, as adherents believed messages posted by "Q" referred to President Trump as a messiah and Trump tacitly acknowledged the group. In addition, QAnon has international influence, most recently in the "trucker" convoy in Canada and anti-vaccine protests in New Zealand and Germany. This essay utilizes cultural criminology to introduce the framework of relative deprivation theory and emphasize the importance of the gaze from above and below in structuring relative deprivation. In addition, we discuss the role of cultural understandings of victimization in shaping ideology and physical frameworks used by QAnon.

  • The Politics of Exploitation and Oppression, British Colonization, and
           Chinese Involvement in Zimbabwe

    • Authors: Munhuweyi Kenneth Takudzwa
      Abstract: In an analog philosophy by Lobengula of the chameleon and the fly, he unveiled the British occupation of Zimbabwe, which I equally translated or is similar to the 21st-century Chinese involvement in Zimbabwe. In understanding the exploitative nature of colonial and post-colonial politics, the research offered a comparative analysis of the British and Chinese involvement in Zimbabwe. The post-colonial economic colonization neo-colonialism, similar to dependency theory proponents, found the African continent under exploitation and oppression in her post-independence. The researcher utilized qualitative research of documentary review, online sources, and virtual ethnography to unveil and enrich the study phenomenon.

  • Understanding the Decision-Making Process of Women to Engage in Cohabiting
           Relationships

    • Authors: Nathaniel Phuti Kgadima; Goitseone Emelda Leburu
      Abstract: Despite the extensive literature on cohabitation, there is scant literature that explores women’s decisions to engage in cohabitation. Drawing on the theory of planned behaviour and a qualitative research approach, this article explores the decision-making processes among women to engage in cohabitation. For some women, cohabitation was preceded by a clear conversation about the intention to marry. The second group of women described cohabitation as an expression of autonomy and independence by rejecting traditionally prescribed conventions such as marriage. When the promise of marriage fails to materialise, some women become increasingly disillusioned and opt to terminate their co-residence relationships in order to negotiate marriage as an option with their partners. This article utilised purposively and snowball sampling to gather data and this was through semi-structured interviews. This data was analysed thematically, and the results show a preponderance of a desire for autonomy that is checked by the harsh persistence of disempowering narratives. Further research is needed to establish patterns of autonomy in cohabiting partners.

  • The Inherent Limitations of Gender-Based Violence to the Exclusion of
           LGBTIQ: A Guide for Social Workers

    • Authors: Goitseone Emelda Leburu; Nathaniel Phuti Kgadima, Kgashane Johannes Malesa
      Abstract: Drawing from the queer theory, this article strives to understand the scourge of gender-based violence against members of the homosexual community through a literature review. There is a gap in understanding this scourge against LGBTIQ. Additionally, there is a dearth of research on GBV within the social work fraternity despite the profession’s mandate to protect vulnerable groups. A comprehensive understanding of this hate crime is critically important in the current times where incidents of violence based on one’s gender are on the rise in South Africa. Social workers are in a privileged position to educate communities about these appalling crimes and to inform inclusive policies to curb this pandemic against members of the homosexual community.

  • Risk Factors of Substance abuse among University Students: An Exploratory
           Study

    • Authors: Hlengiwe P. Gasa; Sazelo Mkhize, Kemist Shumba, Samuel F. Cinini, Nirmala D. Gopal
      Abstract: Substance abuse is a significant problem among tertiary level students, with alcohol/drug use associated with increased prevalence of negative outcomes, including diminished academic performance, social-interpersonal difficulties, and engaging in risky behaviours. To explore risk factors associated with substance abuse among university students, a qualitative approach was adopted. Twenty on-campus residents were selected through purposive sampling. To elicit their views in-depth interviews were used. Data were thematically analysed, and engendered themes were identified. The findings revealed that various kinds of substances are abused by university students, which include codeine, marijuana (weed), and alcohol. Substance abuse is a kind of behaviour that students either learn or do intentionally, despite their foreknowledge of the negative effects and the risk factors such as peer pressure, stress, and depression. The study concludes that university students are aware of the various negative effects of substance abuse, but they mostly justify it as a way of coping with academic pressure.

  • Inmates in the Role of the "Wounded Healer": The Virtuous of Peer-to-Peer
           Programs in Prison

    • Authors: Ety Elisha
      Abstract: Researchers in the field of crime desistance have recently focused on the strength-based role of the "wounded healer" or "professional-ex", as exemplified by former addicts and prisoners who desist from crime and recover through the professional practice of peer mentoring. Studies point to the many benefits inherent in the role of the “wounded healer” for incarcerated people employed in peer-based rehabilitation roles. These benefits can include opportunities to experience accomplishments and an increasing sense of ability and self-worth. Additional benefits include acquiring a new meaning and purpose in life, the development of a new self-identity, increasing feelings of belonging and satisfaction from life, and a stronger commitment to avoid crime. These findings suggest that formerly incarcerated individuals can form positive, pro-social relationships with their peers and serve as positive role models for them. The purpose of the present article is to review the current literature on peer-to-peer programs currently implemented in Western prisons, to establish and expand them, as a means of improving the rehabilitation efforts of present and past prisoners. It is recommended to examine the preservation of their benefits and effectiveness in the long run, both for aid providers and recipients.

  • Criminal Law and Neuroscience: Theory and Practice in the Italian
           Perspective

    • Authors: Ciro Grandi
      Abstract: The debate on the impact on criminal justice of the empirical evidence offered by techniques of brain exploration and behavioral genetics shows no sign of diminishing, fed by literature now boundless and by case law in constant growth. In the Italian system, the impact of neuroscience at trial is still rather limited and substantially confined to its sedes naturalis, that is to say, the insanity defense. Even in this area, however, there is a very cautious, if not sometimes distrustful, attitude on the part of the courts, still doubtful about the epistemological reliability of neuroscientific evidence. The interdisciplinary dialogue is called upon to help overcome uncertainties and resistance, to avoid the underestimation of data endowed – albeit in a complementary and integrative function – with an increasingly objective value. Summary: 1. Foreword. - 2. Neuroscience: an outline. - Neuroscience and criminal law in the light of the radical-revolutionary model. - 4. Neuroscience and criminal law in the light of the moderate-compatibilist model. - 5. An overview of the use of “neuroscientific evidence” in practice - 6. Neuroscience and the evaluation of criminal capacity: a first assessment. - 7. The (still) limited impact of neuroscience in the Italian criminal trial. Diagnosis and prognosis. – 8. Conclusions.
