Crime and Justice

The Crime and Justice Research Group is multi-disciplinary and collaborative. Membership includes staff and postgraduate students with a range of research interests and expertise related to crime and criminal justice both theoretically and applied.

The group’s research activities are structured thematically around four key areas contested concepts; critical social theory; criminal justice: system and process and organised crime. While research activities across this group span a range of projects, key areas inform the work, ensuring that methodology and analysis is informed by a critical investigation of criminological theory and applied research in the areas of crime and justice. Work carried out across and in association with this research group is underpinned by an appreciation of, and engagement with, interdisciplinary, comparative and cross-cultural perspectives. The group’s activities also contribute directly to theScottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR),a partnership between the Universities of Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian.
