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.


Sarah Armstrong @SCCJR_Director and James Reilly have completed analysis of the EuroPris working group questionnaire on Prison Education in Europe. Read more on SCCJR website

We have today launched a public consultation inviting views on a new sentencing guideline. The sentencing process guideline sets out the steps taken by courts in making sentencing decisions, and the factors which may be taken into account.

There are two fantastic pre-conference workshops you can attend in the morning so get yourself signed up in advance - space is limited!

More details about both workshops will follow and remember to bring along your own field notes/data 🎉🎉
