Contemporary Challenges: The Global Crime, Justice and Security Journal (CCJ) is a student-led journal affiliated with the University of Edinburgh. CCJ was founded in 2020 by students from the MSc in Global Crime, Justice and Security and related programmes at Edinburgh Law School.

Students are not only welcome but are strongly encouraged to submit their papers and thereby participate in the academic debate at the intersection of crime, justice and security that CCJ provides a platform for.

CCJ is global in its outlook and interdisciplinary in nature. Our editorial board is made up of postgraduate students from a variety of disciplines including law, criminology and international relations. We believe that this diversity of academic backgrounds allows us to engage with contemporary challenges intersectionally and comprehensively - in short, in the way that the challenges of today demand.

On this website, you will find information about the journal, including the key contacts. You will also be able to make a submission through the ‘Make a Submission’ button on the left.
