Brief description The project seeks to examine the nature, influence and impact of citizens’ engagement with crime and justice via social media. The way our society engages in public debate on key social and political issues has been dramatically transformed by the participation enabled by social media technologies. The project aims to systematically examine the contradictory promises, perils and tensions of such citizen engagements, which have the potential to facilitate democratic deliberation on crime and justice, as well as injustice, punitiveness and vigilantism.
