Police and Policing Research Discussion Group

About the Group

The Police and Policing Research Discussion Group holds discussions about practical and theoretical issues relating to police research and provides intellectual support for research students and junior researchers engaged in or planning for empirical research on the police. We are interdisciplinary and our membership includes students and faculty from across the social sciences.

We are currently preparing our schedule of discussions for Trinity term 2013. As always, the group's content is membership-driven, so any suggestions for future discussion dates or topics are welcome at this point. We seek to provide feedback and support to any member or visitor to the Oxford community who is engaged in research on policing, either centrally or peripherally.

Interested participants in future discussions are asked to get in contact with the group's convener by email to be included in the mailing list for upcoming discussions. Preparation reading is required so attendees should register their interest beforehand. Any interested student or faculty member is more than welcome to take part, and we encourage participants from all disciplines.

Discussions will take place in the Centre for Criminology meeting room, and coffee and tea will be provided. Please also note that we have co-organized an event on Police and Crime Commissioners on 29 April, and those who would like to attend should contact the convener through the email address below.

Convenor: Matthew Davies
