Event description
Join the Criminology Conference organised by the School of Social Sciences at the University of Westminster

About this event

The criminology team within the School of Social Sciences at the University of Westminster is vibrant, innovative and diverse. As a consequence, the research undertaken by the team, part of Centre for the Study of Democracy, addresses many important global issues as well as those with a more local focus.

This conference is a unique opportunity to gain insights into the areas of specialism and research at Westminster. All of the presenters are not only engaged in research but teach on the many undergraduate criminology degrees on offer at Westminster as well as the new global criminology-focused MA programme.

We are committed to decolonising, diversifying and making an impact on communities and societies beyond the University. We also have a great community of PhD students and many of these will be involved in the conference as well.

The conference is a hybrid platform with limited face-to-face spaces but also the opportunity to join us online for part or all of the conference. When registering, please choose the right ticket type for you - onsite or online.

We will look forward to welcoming you to Westminster Criminology Conference.
