Welcome to the British Society of Criminology
UPDATE – Postal deliveries to the BSC Office
Alternative arrangements are being made to store all post (unopened) until we are back in the office. Please use email to contact us, scanning any documents. All steps are being taken to keep the services to you, our members, as uninterrupted as possible.
We are sad to announce the cancellation of the annual conference, including postgraduate event, scheduled to take place at the University of Liverpool 8-10th July 2020. The BSC fully appreciates what this decision means for delegates. We recognise both the financial implications and lost opportunities to many colleagues as a result of this cancellation. We will reimburse all those who have registered to date a 100% refund of the registration fee and will begin the process of issuing refunds as soon as possible. We would like to thank everyone that has been involved in planning this event. We hope you and your families stay safe and we hope to see you at our conference next year.
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 nearly 60 years and has a wide-ranging membership based here and overseas.
The BSC Annual Conference 2020 will be in Liverpool. Registration opened December 2, 2019.

BSC Members Book Draw
Given the uncertain times we are in, we have not received a reply from this month’s donating publisher. So we are instead giving away a mystery book! It will be well worth having and we will reveal what it is at the end of the month – will you take a chance and enter? To enter this book prize draw, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Prize Draw: April’ in the subject line. The closing date is April 30, 2020. The draw will be made at the beginning of May 2020. All entries are checked as being BSC members and then drawn randomly. We only contact the winner directly. Notice of the winner will be made in the BSC bulletin, the website and on Twitter.
With thanks to Routledge who donated a copy of Criminology: A Sociological Introduction, 4th Edition. The winner was BSC Member Stephen Burrell.
