Brexit Criminology: Crime, Justice and Society
  • Devonport Lecture Theatre, Portland Square Building, Plymouth University

Save event

The imminent activation of Article 50 will provide formal notification of the British intention to withdraw from membership of the EU. Our social, economic and political terrain is set to change, with far ranging and as yet uncertain implications. 

This free to attend one-day conference, organised by the iSPER Crime, Justice and Society research group, encourages papers that collectively illustrate the challenge of what we might call ‘Brexit Criminology’. 

Through a rejection of simplistic explanatory tropes, Brexit Criminology attempts to explore and understand the local, national and global forces which underpinned the referendum result. Looking to the future, a ‘Brexit Criminology’ must engage with wide ranging questions around immigration, employment, vulnerability and harm, and it is around these questions that the event will be centred.

Plenary speakers for the event will include: Professor Jon Garland (University of Surrey), Dr Lisa McKenzie (LSE) and Professor Simon Winlow (Teesside University).
