Abstract

This text seeks to contextualise comparative criminological enquiry beyond black-letter law comparisons by emphasising extra-legal elements such as culture, custom and religion across different non-western juvenile justice systems. The editors are well informed about the usual dilemmas comparative criminologists, such as Nelken (1997), have asserted with reference to the ‘convergent/divergent’ methodological debate raised by such scholarship.
