Event overview

We are pleased to announce the Criminal Justice and Violence across the Lifespan conference. The conference will be of interest to academics, law enforcement agencies, students, government and non-government organisations sharing an interest on diverse ways in which violence intersects with the criminal justice system. The conference offers a valuable opportunity for academics, policy makers and practitioners to come together and consider the myriad of ways in which violence is implicated in how individuals, families and communities enter and experience the criminal justice system and how they may encounter violence at the hand of the criminal justice system. This will be a multidisciplinary conference that will cover a wide range of topics ranging from: child sexual exploitation, characteristics of perpetrators of sexual and intimate partner and familial violence, homicide, death in custody, prisons, policing, desistance and rehabilitation.

The call for abstracts is currently open and we are welcoming research papers or discussion papers on:

  • Forensic interviewing
  • Hate crime
  • Homicide and atypical homicide
  • Intimate partner violence
  • Offender management and risk assessment
  • Research methodology
