This International Environmental Crime Conference will showcase leading research that highlights the intersection between Security and Environmental Crime, with a special focus on the ways in which environmental crime threatens security and converges with other serious crimes.
Previously hosted in the Netherlands and UK, the International Environmental Crime Conferences have brought together academics, practitioners and policy makers from various disciplines to exchange views, concepts and research findings, all discussed through the lens of green criminology, sociology, law enforcement, community wellbeing, policy, environmental activism, organised crime and critical ecology. There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and discussion throughout the day.
Environmental crime is one of the most profitable and fastest growing crimes internationally. Heightened awareness of the proliferation and scale of the harms involved is altering the way we view and respond to offences such as transnational transportation and dumping of toxic waste and e-waste and the trafficking and destruction of flora and fauna. These offences demonstrate a growing sophistication though convergence with other serious crimes and the involvement of transnational organised crime groups. Consequently, environmental crime negatively impacts state revenue, peace and security. Through the exploitation of natural resources, environmental crimes can result in state instability and conflict. For example, violence conflict over scarce resources and profits from the illegal trade used to fund terrorist groups have been documented. Through showcasing key research, this event aims to improve understanding of environmental crime linkages to wider security challenges.
This conference is organised by Jennifer Maher (University of South Wales), Toine Spapens (Tilburg University), Daan van Uhm (Utrecht University), Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University), and Rob White (University of Tasmania).

Crime and Control Ethnography Symposium
September 5 & 6, 2018
Hosted by the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London
FREE TO ATTEND
This symposium will bring together ethnographers from a range of disciplines for two days of workshops, walks, presentations and discussion on the challenges involved in researching crime, deviance and social control. Themes to be discussed include but will not be limited to: intoxicated ethnography; guilty knowledge; friends as participants; breaking the law; mistakes; ethnography on the move; private and public selves; institutional ethnographies; consent; gender and fieldwork; sensory methods; gaining access; gonzo ethnography and auto-ethnography.
We are very pleased to announce that eminent ethnographers Maggie O’Neill, Kate Gooch and Shane Blackman will be joining the conference as keynote speakers. Maggie, Kate and Shane have undertaken ethnographic research on subjects including prisons and youth subcultures. Their many books, articles and chapters on ethnographic research have inspired researchers internationally.
The symposium will also include a 2-hour workshop focussing on digital security for researchers. The workshop will give participants the knowledge and practical skills to protect their mobile devices, computers and communications from unwanted search.
The symposium is free to attend – however places are strictly limited and preference will be given to practicing ethnographers, early career researchers and PhD students. Those wishing to attend should complete the registration form available at the conference website:

Across the broadest range of public health issues, the Law Enforcement and Public Health Conferences held in 2102, 2014 and 2016 worked to:
- Enhance local, national and international political and institutional leadership
- Understand, develop and sustain partnerships
- Translate research to policy to practice
- Promote the critical role of education and training
- Develop a multidisciplinary research agenda and methodology
- Build and promote ongoing interactions between interested people through the GLEPH Association
Objectives for LEPH2018 Toronto
The LEPH2018 Convener and Partners believe that, in addressing complex health and security issues:
- Law enforcement and health are intimately related and necessary partners
- Organizations from both fields should work together closely to increase the health and safety of citizens
- This is an important multidisciplinary domain which requires more exploration in empirical detail and in principle, and a greater focus on what the intersection means and necessitates, and how it can be improved and developed
- Further learnings in this domain are best gained by combining research insights and professional practices. This requires the bringing together of researchers, practitioners and policymakers
- International exchange of insights and practices is an important accelerator in the development of this important field
- This field has a crucial contribution to make to the achievement of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

|The 31st Annual Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology (ANZSOC) conference will be held at the University of Melbourne from 4 – 7 December 2018.
The theme of the ANZSOC 2018 Conference is
‘ENCOUNTERING CRIME: DOING JUSTICE’.
This theme speaks to the many ways we encounter crime and find ways of doing justice – across time, place and scale – from the everyday to the extraordinary, the interpersonal to the international.
As well as exciting international and local keynotes – to be announced shortly, watch this space! – the program will include a wide range of presentations, plenary and round-table sessions.
The conference will also include a number of collaborative conversations between researchers, policy-makers, civil society and practitioners.
You are invited and encouraged to join in a robust exchange of voices, visions and experiences of crime, criminology, criminal justice and justice more broadly conceived.
Abstract submissions are now open! Please go to the website for more information: http://anzsoc2018.com
December 10, 2018
The criminal courtroom is undergoing a shift wherein its outcomes are now more readily available to the public via digital media, and its processes and practices are increasingly likely to rely on audio-visual technology. From the move towards online courts, to the increased reliance on photographic evidence, from the recent introduction of courtroom broadcasting to the use of live-link video for witness testimony, the twenty-first century courtroom is steadily moving into a virtual realm.
This one-day symposium explores the emergence, implications, and impact of these new technologies of transmission in the courtroom. The event is interdisciplinary, and brings together speakers from law, sociology, criminology, media and communication studies, and the arts. Discussion will focus on three inter-related topics: the as-live transmission of court and inquiry proceedings via tweets and video footage; the use of live link technology and visual evidence in criminal trials; and the move towards online adjudication and sanctions (the so-called ‘virtual courtroom’). In creating a space to consider these important developments alongside one another, the symposium seeks to develop shared insights around the key themes of transparency, visuality, and mediatization. A key concern will be what’s lost – if anything – in the turn towards visual and digital technologies in the courtroom, and the effects of mediation on jurors, witnesses, defendants, and the public.
This event is sponsored by the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath.
Places are free, but must be reserved in advance.
