The crime and social justice research group draws on a range of inter-disciplinary areas to explore and drive forward critical understandings of crime and social justice. Members of the group have a reputation for delivering high quality and real life impact research across a broad range of areas including: critical postcolonial and decolonial perspectives on criminal justice, cybercrime; environmental crime and harms to the nonhuman; gender and crime; harms to the self; human rights and the law; policing and securities; neighbourhood policing; prisoner education and resettlement; religion, race and domestic abuse; resettlement, religion and Christianity; sexual violence and victimisation; male sex work; transphobic hate crime; welfare practices; youth justice.
Our research aims to become a key driver of knowledge exchange and information sharing between academics, practitioners, activists and policy-makers and to have real life impact for those who engage with the criminal justice system.
