Welcome to the British Society of Criminology
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were forced to cancel our 2020 conference which would have been hosted by The University of Liverpool. This decision meant delegates missed the chance to network with their peers and present their research. In recognition of these lost opportunities we wanted to offer some alternative ways of engaging.
Follow the link to the landing page for link to events, podcasts, video and more. We look forward to developing this further during the summer. If you wish to make a contribution please contact us at email@example.com
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.
