This volume emerges from the collaboration of two Professors Paul Roberts (Professor of Criminal Jurisprudence, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Nottingham, UK) and Michael Stockdale (Head of Law and Director of the Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies, Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK). They foster exchanges through the Northumbria Centre for Evidence & Criminal Justice Studies (NCECJS), which is part of Northumbria Law School. Jointly, the Editors gathered a global group of 18 contributors in total (from the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Malaysia, Australia, Canada and the US). They are all recognised experts in their fields which include the law, forensic science, regulation and policy-making. The volume features 13 chapters that, individually and collectively, demonstrate a rigorously interdisciplinary and international perspective.
