The main themes addressed in Leonidas' research can be grouped under two broad headings: first, the political economy of state and public punitiveness; and second, the implementation and consequences of criminal justice policy. Jurisdictionally, the focus of his work to date has been on the Mediterranean region and the Anglo-American world from both national and international comparative angles. Methodologically, his research brings together theoretical concepts and insights from a variety of disciplinary fields, especially from sociology, anthropology, psychology and history, also fusing them with findings from fieldwork he has undertaken in criminal justice settings.
