Komiteen skriver blant annet i sin innstilling at:

“The article shows how international criminal justice raises important questions for criminological understanding of punishment, particularly its epistemological foundations and legitimacy, on the international as well as the national level. The committee particularly emphasizes the comparative strengths of the paper regarding originality of its research question, innovativeness, clarity of thought through excellent expression.

Kjersti Lohne was 34 years old at the time of publication of the article, and in addition to the nominated article, she has several other interesting publications to her name. It is worth pointing out that the paper she has been nominated for has been published in a top-ranked criminology journal. Lohne’s article was jointly nominated by Prof Katja Franko and Prof May-Len Skilbrei, who note that the paper combines theoretical nuance and innovation with attention to empirical detail, whereas its major strength is the bridging of traditional (national) criminological perspectives with emerging international narratives of punishment, which build on the discourse of humanitarianism. An assessment we unanimously confirm and couldn’t agree more with."

Artikkelen “Penal humanitarianism beyond the nation state: An analysis of international criminal justice” ble utgitt i 2018 i tidsskriftet Theoretical Criminology.

ESC Young Criminologist Award er en av to priser som utdeles av styret i European Society of Criminology (ESC). Prisutdelingen vil finne sted på ESC sin konferanse som i år avholdes 18-21 september i Gent, Belgia.
