(p.207) 7 Conclusions
Speaking Truths to Power

Jarrett Blaustein

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes by summarizing the main arguments from the text, reiterating the findings of the book in response to the questions posed in the introduction. It then proceeds to outline a future research agenda for achieving ethical and impactful criminological engagement with transnational policy communities. The rationale for ‘speaking truths to power’ is linked with the author’s belief that Northern criminologists conducting research ‘abroad’ have an obligation to ensure that their work fosters a better global politics of crime and security governance, especially in weak and structurally dependent societies, by developing innovative research methods that combine the aim of understanding with that of empowerment.

Keywords:   deliberative democracy, reflexivity, criminological engagement, transnational, civic criminology, policy Delphi, discursive democracy, Dryzek, democratic under-labouring
