In this chapter, we return to our initial paper championing the idea of a “public criminology,” which was originally published in 2000. Here, we further develop the argument by insisting that the criminological compass has for too long pointed to the global North and that a re-thinking of what “public criminology” might mean offers an opportunity for some re-orientation. Specifically, we highlight migration control as a site of conflict and struggle over the human rights and human security of those who do not have citizenship privileges. We then consider the victimization and continuing exploitation of Indigenous peoples and their environments, particularly in the global South, before re-visiting the idea of a public criminology that takes it beyond parochialism.
