Criminal & social justice About us
We are an inter-disciplinary team of scholars and researchers from all career stages. The researchers in this cluster both co-collaborate and participate in wider research networks and communities of practice, nationally and internationally.
While our research topics are many and varied, we share a focus on social justice, penal reform and civil and human rights. Our work connects to the broader concerns of the social sciences; to thinking comparatively and critically about crime and punishment; to bringing together sociological and normative approaches to the analysis of crime and justice; and to working at the intersections between criminology, public policy and professional practice. Our work is oriented to making a national and international impact by creating a positive difference.
We're involved, in various ways, in SCCJR, a world leading research centre and CYCJ, a national knowledge exchange centre.
