Boycott, resistance and the role of the deviant voice

Walters, Reece (2006). Boycott, resistance and the role of the deviant voice. Criminal Justice Matters, 62(1) pp. 6–7.



I recently logged onto the Home Office Research Development and Statistics (RDS) website and was greeted with a large flashing announcement that read; “economists we want you”. This appeal echoed the views of a senior RDS person I recently interviewed who stated; “We recruit quite a lot of people and it's very rare that we employ people who have degrees in criminology because they don't have any skills… We're employing all sorts of people and the most obvious are those with psychology, economics and physics because they have more skills” (Walters, 2003) - great news for all those criminology students! But what can be said about the trajectory of Home Office criminology and the construction of criminological knowldege?
