The Centre for Crime and Justice Research serves as a focal point for criminal justice and criminological research at City, University of London.
The Centre was established to promote and advance national and comparative research and scholarship in the following areas:
- Criminal law and criminal justice
- Legal cultures
- Crime and criminal justice
- Sociology of law and victimology.
We are at the forefront of research innovation using multi-disciplinary approaches.
Our mission is to conduct research and analysis that informs:
- Public understanding of crime
- Criminal justice and socio-legal transformations
- Policy formation
- Scholarly development.
We do so through the organisation of seminars, workshops, public lectures and film screenings. Centre members also run specialist courses in criminology, criminal justice and socio-legal studies and supervise doctoral students.
We welcome proposals to work with us whether as prospective students working on any of our substantive research topics, visiting faculty or as collaborators on specific research projects.
