Centre for Crime, Justice and Security


In this blog, you will find all research and activities undertaken within the Centre for Crime, Justice and Security. 

“As a result of our expertise in, and commitment to, human rights, global security and justice for all, we will be the destination of choice, nationally and internationally, for students, staff and external stakeholders. The work we do with out communities aims to enrich and transform lives and to positively impact on policy and practice in wider social and criminal justice environments.”

The overall focus of the Centre is the promotion, development and implementation of Justice in various forms, primarily social, civil and criminal justice but also in terms of how social justice impacts and is impacted by criminal justice practices. The Centre is underpinned by three pillars: ethics and integrity; sustainability and evidence based practice.
