In Criminology and Criminal Justice, one of the key priorities of this collection is to address social justice issues and emerging areas of crime. This includes topics like justice online, justice for victims, and increasing attention is given to underrepresented and decolonised perspectives on crime and justice including from the Global South. Cybercrime poses complex challenges which can only be resolved by bringing disparate areas of cutting-edge, social science research together. In Law beyond International Law European Law, International Comparative Law and Philosophy of Law are a major focus of the collection. This e-book collection, which was formed in 2017 to unite Law, Criminology and Criminal Justice, and Socio-Legal Studies research, addresses key, global challenges.

It covers widespread issues like Intellectual Property, Law & Technology, the Rule of Law, White Collar Crime, Drugs and Human Trafficking. Policing is a strength area of the collection, covering important topics like policing and big data, reform, police corruption and politics. Critical criminology remains a flagship area with new books on mental health, gender, race and human rights.

The breadth of this collection is one of its key strengths, offering the largest reference works e.g. Commentary on the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to short Palgrave Pivots and Springer Briefs focussing on specific areas. Our authors range from the leaders of the academic/practitioner field to rising-star, early career researchers. The renowned T.M.C Asser Press brings strong titles in the field of Humanitarian Law, International Criminal Law and Sports Law. Overall, this collection fosters interdisciplinary research from top scholars to examine cutting-edge, global topics of public interest in order to find big idea solutions.
