    Commissioning Editor
    Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies


    Josie has been with Palgrave Macmillan since 2013, first working on professional business and finance titles and now on criminology and socio-legal studies. She is interested in a wide range of topics, particularly cutting-edge, critical, global topics including: youth justice, gender, mental health, green criminology, terrorism, policing, hate studies, cybercrime, race and crime, human rights, and prisons.

 Palgrave Macmillan really are a class act! I will recommend them most highly to fellow academics and students alike.

It has been such a pleasure working with you and we are so glad we chose Palgrave Macmillan to publish our work.
