Exploring our social world

We're a department of leading academics and inquisitive students.

We've asked why the Victorians were better at rehabilitating child offenders than we are, what the effect of ethnic and racial harassment has on a victim’s mental health, and what can be done to improve the treatment of women in our criminal justice system. You can keep up-to-date with our latest developments and current activities by our staff and students.
