Welcome to the British Society of Criminology
UPDATE – Changes due to COVID-19
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. 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.
