2 – 5 September 2008 VIII Annual Conference
‘Criminology in the public sphere’ This event will build upon and extend the now-established tradition of the European Society of Criminology in stimulating and focusing co-operation and exchange among scholars throughout – and beyond – Europe.
We look forward to a varied and inclusive discussion, embracing with enthusiasm the catholic scope of topics, methods and approaches that make up contemporary criminological debate. In particular, Edinburgh – as the capital of a nation within a nation – is an apt place in which to consider further questions about national, supra-national and sub-national governance and institutions and their relation to the major criminological questions of our time. How do criminologists rise to the challenge of these questions? What are the most fruitful ways in which their work may inform intervention and enter wider public conversation?
Conference organisers are grateful for the support of the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) and the Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR).
