The aim of the conference is to outline the current state of critical criminology in its epistemological, methodological and political dimensions. The starting point is the recognition that critical criminology, especially in Latin America, has made significant contributions to the global development of the discipline and raises acute questions about the current impasse in the field. The crisis of critical criminology that broke out in the 1980s will be confronted with the current political reality, notably in the face of the advance of a new type of authoritarianism. Thus, the conference will seek to identify contemporary movements of external and internal criticism in the field, organizing the debate on the aforementioned levels (epistemological, methodological and political). It will seek to present the current challenges and point out strategic paths for academic criticism and emancipatory social movements in order to build a unified resistance to authoritarianism.
