In the first book to theorize and define the social harm concept beyond criminology, Simon Pemberton addresses these omissions and, in doing so, provides a platform for future debates. Using case studies of various international regimes, he analyzes policy responses to different forms of social harm and provides a new typology of countries according to their harm prevention policies.
