Crime, Justice and Society

Explore the role of the state and criminal justice interventions in producing safe and just societies

What traditional and innovative responses to crime and victimisation work? Why do people stop offending? Which interventions are seen as fair, lawful and effective?

Alongside a team of specialists from the Centre for Criminological Research in the School of Law at the University of Sheffield, you will explore, debate and research subjects such as crime and criminal justice; policing; victims and victim support; restorative justice; prisons and confinement; community sanctions; and desistance.
