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.


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.
