Academic knowledge about conflict, power and justice has traditionally come from a select number of countries belonging to the Global North; whose magazines, conferences, editors and universities exercise dominion over the global intellectual landscape. In recent decades, substantial efforts have been made to mitigate these colonized ways of generating new knowledge in the area.

This three-day congress held in Colombia, invites academics, activists and professionals; who throughout the globe have sought to contribute to the task of democratizing and building a knowledge of the South.

The objective is to connect activists, academics and professionals from north and south; within a collective global project aimed at the creation of innovative and critical global knowledge. The idea emerged from the International congress on  southern criminology, which took place in November 2018 at the National University of the Litoral (Argentina), conducted jointly between it and the Technological University of Queensland Australia; the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM); the Catholic University of Colombia; the University of Essex (United Kingdom); the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (Argentina); the University of Northumbria (United Kingdom) and the University of Oslo (Norway).

The event will have simultaneous translations of selected sessions. Selected articles will be published in a special edition of the journal Critical Criminology.
