The 50th Campaign

In recognition of the Centre for Criminology’s milestone birthday in 2016, the Faculty of Law will launch the Centre’s ‘50th Anniversary Campaign’ to secure and enhance the next fifty years of research and teaching by establishing a Global Criminal Justice Research Hub in the Centre. This Hub, which will include a series of initiatives, from a new lectureship in quantitative criminology to funded studentships reflects and will build on our existing interests and expertise in global criminal justice matters.  As our teaching and research record indicate, such matters are not distinct from the local, but rather, have become increasingly intertwined.  Just as many of our students come to us from abroad, so, too, ideas and criminal justice policies travel.

The Centre’s 50th Anniversary Campaign is about ensuring that the Centre will continue to flourish for the next 50 years. We need to protect its unique offer of education for the next generation, and to ensure that financial need is not a barrier to qualified candidates. Establishing a Global Criminal Justice Research Hub at the Centre will position us as a world leader in the field of Global Criminal Justice, enhancing our research and teaching capacity while bringing a new focus and greater understanding to the widening framework of criminal justice.

If you would like to support the 50th Campaign, please visit the Faculty’s online donation page and select ‘Centre for Criminology 50th Anniversary’ from the designation list.
