Chapter 11: Glocalization and crime: not just a question of variable geometry
Restricted access

In this conceptual contribution, we aim to add glocalized perspectives to the current debate on globalization and crime. First, the concept of glocalization and its use in criminology will be defined. In the following section, we will introduce the idea of crime and victimization as polycentric cascade problems within a context of super-diversity where national and international criminal justice can be analysed using the theoretical tool of chronotopes (Valverde, 2015). We will then reinterpret and relate those notions with the aim of extracting key elements for the analysis of the academic understanding of international, transnational and global crimes. After having criticised their limited conceptualization and practice in terms of human rights, we will propose the need for a better understanding of the interrelation between micro and macrovictimization by incorporating a glocalized vision. Finally, we will draw some conclusions and implications of the concept of glocalization for criminology.
