Crime and Criminal Justice Research
The group has a strong reputation for delivering quality, impact research across a broad range of areas
The group sits within LSBU's Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, a research centre with an international standing. Founded in 2005, the CCJRG has developed a strong national and international reputation for delivering high quality and real life impact research across a broad range of areas, including: policing; anti-social behaviour; alcohol related crime; youth crime; drugs and crime; green criminology; prostitution and women offenders.
Three quarters of our research into Social Work and Social Policy was awarded a top quality rating of 3* for 'environment' - "conducive to producing research of internationally excellent quality, in terms of its vitality and sustainability" - Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
The group has worked with a range of government agencies, including the Office for Criminal Justice Reform (Ministry of Justice); Government Office for London; the Scottish Executive, Northern Ireland Office and the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. It has also undertaken extensive research in collaboration with various London local authorities in Lambeth, Lewisham, Brent, Newham and Greenwich, together with a range of voluntary agencies.
The group draws from a wide range of disciplines and inter-disciplinary subjects to develop policy and practice understandings of crime and criminal justice, the results of which have real life impact for practitioners and those who engage with the criminal justice system as offenders and victims.
Group members publish extensively in a range of books, journal articles and official reports and participate widely in national and international conferences. Emphasising their commitment to having a real life impact through their research, group members have also advised government and a range of statutory agencies on crime, community safety and criminal justice issues.
