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.


Based on requests, I have been encouraged to conduct some learning sessions on Instagram, centring on black studies, black criminology, and researching the black community. For more details please follow me on
Any suggestions for included topics please DM me.

Introducing ‘A Giant on the Bridge’, led by @JoCollScott as part of #DistantVoices
The show would have been performed live in April. But for now, here's a taster from a 'read through' filmed under lockdown.

Really loved being involved in creating this complex show with some brilliant people led by @JoCollScott. This is a trailer made in lockdown for the live shows postponed by covid. I can't wait till I can stand in a crowd watching my friends and colleagues perform it live!

Pls watch and RT: Criminal justice puts people in boxes, and that produces all sorts of hurts and harms. We need to imagine different approaches: Introducing ‘A Giant on the Bridge’.
