Two-day international conference to be held at Keble College, Oxford
Tuesday 31 March – Wednesday 1 April 2020
How social harms are understood, questioned and tackled can have a profound effect on how communities approach crime and justice. This conference comes at a time when communities across the world are experiencing change and uncertainly affecting how they understand themselves and challenges to the status quo. Coping with, responding to and supporting such uncertainty and change brings challenges for political institutions, criminal justice agencies and civic society in developing values, strategies and systems.
We will bring together academics, policy makers, practitioners and those directly affected by the criminal justice system to discuss, reflect on and suggest alternative strategies.
The Howard League’s conference will consider the intersection of issues relating to crime, justice and social harms. Building on the Howard League’s Commission on Crime and Problem Gambling and the burgeoning international concern around it, we are keen to explore the impact of problem gambling on patterns of crime and the societal harms that link crime and problem gambling.
We will be announcing speakers soon.

The Howard League is looking for papers from academics, policy makers, practitioners, PhD students and researchers from within the criminological and legal disciplines, however we are also keen to include contributions from fields of study including philosophy, geography, political science and economics.

The 25-day protest in 1990 at Strangeways prison in Manchester was the longest prison protest in British history.
On 1 April 2020 – 30 years to the day from the start of the protest – we will be holding a major conference in central London to discuss the past, present and future of prisons.
The root causes of the protests lay in many years of unjust and abusive prison policies and practices that affected not just Strangeways, but the British prison system as a whole. The conference will consider the deep history of British prisons, using the Strangeways protests as a signal moment in a wider history of problematic and abusive institutions.
April 23-24, 2020, Bangor University
Ethnography has proved to be a crucial methodology for entering and understanding the world of policing. The contemporary ‘pluralised’ policing field comprises a multiplicity of public, private and voluntary organisations, inviting new avenues for ethnographic research and debate. This two-day conference brings together policing scholars and practitioners to discuss and share insights from ethnographic fieldwork undertaken with policing actors and social control professionals across different contexts.

In addition to the stellar panels and fellowship that have made Southern conference the top regional criminology conference, we’ve planned a special emphasis on how we expand the reach of our scholarship and teaching in meaningful ways to recognize and value the importance of interdisciplinary outreach and implications. Thematic presentations, discussions, and roundtables will largely focus on this theme.
