Samantha Fletcher

Hello, my name is Samantha Fletcher and I’m a lecturer in criminology at the Open University and deputy chair for the module DD804 Crime and global justice, which is a 120 credit core module for the F75 MA Crime and justice.

My research is concerned with sites of protest, resistance, contestation, and activism, such as the Occupy movement, where I seek to learn from these phenomena to further inform critical scholarship regarding matters of crime, harm and justice. My research takes an interdisciplinary approach, borrowing from multiple works in the humanities and social science. But central to all my research concerns is active scholarship that seeks to make contributions to redress inequalities related to harm(s) associated with capitalist accumulation of wealth and inequality.

I am currently the coordinator of the Crimes of the Powerful Working Group c/o The European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control. The group welcomes and seeks to foster links between activists, academics, teachers, researchers and students with the aim to provide an opportunity to share knowledge regarding the extent and nature of corporate and state crimes and harms, inclusive of collaborative research prospects that work towards emancipatory change and social justice.
