This is the second of three special editions of Acta Criminologica containing papers that were presented at the Criminological and Victimological Society of Southern Africa's (CRIMSA) Conference in August 2007. The conference was held at the University of Pretoria at its Conference Centre and was titled Perspectives on Crime and Criminal Justice in Africa. More than 100 delegates attended the three days during which 53 presentations were made in breakaway sessions. In addition to these presentations, six international speakers took care of the daily plenary sessions. A wide range of topics was on the agenda stimulating lively debates and discussions. With the three special editions featuring some of the papers that were presented, it is hoped that the academic discourse started at the conference will proceed with as much vigor and enthusiasm. All papers submitted prior to the conference were divided into four categories (i.e. Criminology, Victimology, Penology and Criminal Justice) for evaluation purposes to determine award winners in the respective categories. There was also a category for works-in-progress / post-graduate student papers in all four of the categories.
