Welcome to the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research

The Centre is a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Strathclyde. The SCCJR aims to produce research that informs policy and practice and advances our understanding of justice.


Our next SCCJR Seminar will be presented by Biko Agozino, a Prof of Sociology & Africana Studies at Virginia Tech. He is the author of 'Black Women and the Criminal Justice System' and of 'Counter-Colonial Criminology'.
Join him on Fri 4 Dec at 2pm (GMT)

Please join us to amplify the voices of informal women workers + support actions to #RatifyILO190
