2020 – Criminology in an Age of Global Injustice(s)
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.
