Crime, Justice, Welfare: Can the Metropole Listen?
Hosted by University of Liverpool

Editor’s Note

In 2014 the British Society of Criminology Conference was hosted by the University of Liverpool. Held from 9th to 12th July the conference had the title “Crime, Justice, Welfare: Can the Metropole Listen?”. Sixteen papers were submitted to this conference journal, with five being accepted for publication. The journal has a rigorous peer-review process but (hopefully) a sympathetic approach to authors – especially early career and postgraduate authors – with helpful feedback and advice. I am hugely indebted to the editorial board, the various reviewers and the authors for making this journal a success in a very tight timetable.
