Prof Hazel Croall
Hazel has retired from her post of Professor of Criminology at Glasgow Caledonian University but retains an interest in several areas of criminology and criminal justice.
She taught criminology for many years, teaching a range of courses encompassing criminal justice, criminological theory, crime and society and white collar, corporate crime and crimes of the powerful. She has many publications, including single and co-authored texts on criminal justice and white collar crime. Her most recent publications include chapters on race, ethnicity and crime, crime and social inequality and corporate crime – all with a Scottish focus – in Criminal Justice in Scotland, which she co-edited with Gerry Mooney and Mary Munro, and a second, enlarged edition of her text Crime and Society in Britain. She has also published a number of refereed articles and book chapters on white collar and corporate crime.
Hazel’s current interests include: crime and inequality (particularly in Scotland); corporate and state corporate crime; criminal justice and the corporate offender. She served on a Scottish Executive expert group on the law in relation to Corporate Homicide in 2005, organised the highly successful British Criminology Conference in Glasgow in 2006, and has been an active member of the British Society of Criminology for over 20 years, including membership of the criminology benchmarking committee, and formerly acted as convenor of the Scottish section.
