The Crime and Justice research group is multi-disciplinary and collaborative. Our 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 our research activities span a range of projects our key areas inform our 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. Our work is underpinned by an appreciation of, and engagement with, interdisciplinary, comparative and cross-cultural perspectives. The group’s activities also contribute directly to the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR), a partnership between the Universities of Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian.
