Call for Papers - Race & Justice

Anti-Asian Racism and Violence around the world are not new but are on the surge during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although the crimes against Asians have received a considerable amount of media attention recently, we do not know to what extent and how anti-Asian racism and violence occur due to the limited amount of existing literature. To fulfill the gap, the Korean Society of Criminology in America (KoSCA) calls for papers to address the current global issue in anti-Asian racism and violence.
