British Society of Criminology Conference 2019

Public Criminologies: Community, Conflict and Justice

Postgraduate Conference: 2nd – 3rd July 2019
Main Conference: 3rd – 5th July 2019

The conference will explore the potential prospects for Criminology to ‘bridge the gap’ between academic criminology and public discourse. It will engage with important questions about the role and value of Criminology during a time of conflict and divergence, and hopes to provide meaningful reflections on the political realities of community, conflict and justice. The conference seeks to examine how criminologists can find and use their voice to articulate for collective good in an insecure world.

Taking place in 2019, the conference will explore what it means to conceptualise Criminology as a civic enterprise and address how criminologists might address issues of power, marginalisation, intersectionality and justice in the 21st Century.
