Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to elaborate on some of the ways in which I sought to engage in public criminology in this controlled climate.

Design/methodology/approach

In what follows, I introduce some of the work that I supervised and draw out some principles that might be helpful to others, grouped under the headings of teaching, coordination and supervision.

Originality/value

In contributing to the critical pedagogy of the Master of Social Sciences in the Criminology programme “which has for thirty years sought to cultivate critical, independent scholarship among criminal justice practitioners in Hong Kong”, I had the opportunity to contribute, in a small way, to the growth of a grounded Hong Kong criminology.
