Welcome to the website of the British Society of Criminology
The British Society of Criminology aims to further the interests and knowledge of both academic and professional people who are engaged in any aspect of work or teaching, research or public education about crime, criminal behaviour and the criminal justice systems in the United Kingdom. The Society has been in existence for over 50 years and has a wide-ranging membership based here and overseas.
Registration and call for papers now available for our 2017 annual conference.
