Papers from the British Criminology Conference 2010
Vol. 10. 2010
In 2010 the annual British Society of Criminology Conference was hosted by the University of Leicester, 11-14 July, with the heading “Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Dilemmas and Diversity in Criminology”. During the opening of the conference Professor Pat Carlen was justly awarded the BSC outstanding contribution prize, given to her by her colleague Professor Anne Worrall. This was followed by an interesting mix of plenary sessions provided by Professors Ben Bowling, Reece Walters, Lilie Chouliaraki and Jeff Ferrell. Taking up the main theme of the conference a challenging (and entertaining) presentation was provided at the annual dinner by human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith. Also at the dinner Laurie Taylor provided some amusing reflections on his career. Quality was not restricted to the main speakers with some excellent talks in both the main conference and the increasingly successful postgraduate conference that precedes the main event. Thanks are due to University of Leicester for organising such a well run conference.
