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.


The Committee has published a report on the re-opening of Scotland's courts and tribunals system. You can read here:

Brilliant article in @Pun_Soc truly engaging the dialogue between punishment and society, Russian area studies, and public health. We're working quietly in these unprecedent times on the Gulag's Shadow - breaking new ground in global penology. @GavinSlade4

We’re very excited to be joined by @GudrunSoley tomorrow evening. The eventbrite link is here: still time to join us!

See below a call to share your experiences of prisons in lockdown. They are interested in stories from a personal, family or staff perspective.

Btw, @guardian - you don't have to call people in prison 'inmates' - people works just as well

Finally before the winterval, Yu Mou @soasLAW joins us with her research on guilt in the Chinese criminal justice system.
30 Nov, 1230 GMT, online.
