Anna Eriksson is a criminologist and penologist at Monash University and her research is focused on comparative criminal justice. Dr. Eriksson is particularly focused on imprisonment and other responses to crime and its intended and unintended consequences, ranging from prisoners and their children, restorative justice, community-based approaches to conflict resolution, transitional justice including former paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland, as well as post-release measures and desistance. Catherine Flynn, at Monash University, focuses her research on prisoners and their children. Dr. Flynn is the lead investigator on the Australian Research Council grant that provided the foundation for this Special Issue of Law in Context. Her core work lies in the intersection of social work and criminal justice.
