Collaborative research between sociologists and criminologists

Our key research themes focus on health and healthcare, environmental issues, criminology, ageing and pensions, digital criminology and organised crime.

This is a vibrant research cluster that involves sociologists and criminologists working around the issues of representation, signification, identity and cultural difference within the criminal justice system and in a society more broadly.
