Crime, Justice and Global Security

Crime, Justice & Global Security researchers conduct cross-disciplinary & collaborative studies to shape & inform just laws, policies & practices in local, national, international & digital settings.

Law and policy for social justice

Despite assumptions about human progress, crime, justice and security remain contested themes in political arenas and day-to-day society.

To tackle these complex issues with necessary sensitivity, our researchers come from disciplines including criminology, justice and legal studies, psychology, global studies, political science and international relations.

Drawing on this range of skills and expertise, we foster collaborations with community groups, industry, and governments. We generate evidence-based advocacy for policy and practice reform relevant to a wide range of institutions, governments and service providers.

Our recent research includes studies of gendered violence, digital crime and cybersecurity, transnational crime, emerging security threats, human rights law and wrongful convictions.
