Welcome to the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research

There's some really interesting talks being given in August in Edinburgh by @NatRecordsScot as part of their exhibition 'Prisoners or Patients? Criminal Insanity in Victorian Scotland.'

Get your diaries out 📅 I'm going to be giving a public lecture at the @NatRecordsScot in Edinburgh on the 10th of October. I'll be talking about #CoerciveControl in Victorian Glasgow and you can book here: #twitterstorians #PhDChat #OTDVictorianGlasgow

We would like to hear your views on a proposed new sentencing guideline, which sets out steps taken by courts when making sentencing decisions. To take part in the consultation please go to

Ease yourself into the week with this long read from @K_M_Morrison who has contributed a fantastic new blog marking 20 years of the Scottish Parliament. You can read 'Scottish Penal Reform since Devolution: Reflections and Prospects for Change' here>
