The first step towards realizing this ambitious goal of a Criminal Justice Hub, we are pleased to announce a series of collaborative exchanges with Universities around the world. Just as crime and justice travel, so too, do ideas. In working with colleagues in Universities from across the world, we hope to support critical intellectual exchange that can work towards imagining and implementing global justice. The institutions below offer informal reciprocal opportunities to our faculty and students for short-term visits, informal supervision and exchange.

University of Leuven, Belgium

The Oxford Centre for Criminology has an excellent relationship with Leuven Institute of Criminology (LINC) at KU Leuven in Belgium. LINC and Oxford Criminology welcome visitors from each university to work on one of the following topics: Transitional Justice; Youth Justice; Restorative Justice; Police; Punishment; and Victimology through their respective Academic Visitor programmes. In addition, Oxford Criminology, working with Oxford Transitional Justice Research Group, and LINC will host a biennial 2-day seminar (alternating between the two institutions) on new developments in criminology, human rights and transitional justice, to be launched in November 2017.

If you are interested in finding out more about the programme please contact Professor Carolyn Hoyle or Professor Julian Roberts at the Centre and Professor Stephan Parmentier at Leuven.

University of Melbourne, Australia

The Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford and the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne are pleased to announce the launch of a staff-student exchange programme in Criminology. The aim of the scheme is to enable graduate students studying on the Criminology programmes at Oxford and Melbourne to spend periods of time engaged in research at the partner institution. The scheme is principally aimed at doctoral students but it may also be possible for masters students to take advantage of the scheme. Students participating in the programme will be provided with desk space and access to relevant facilities in the host institution. Each institution will also appoint a student host to assist visiting researchers in settling in.

The programme is also intended to facilitate staff exchanges between Oxford and Melbourne for the purposes of both co-teaching and fostering research collaborations.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the programme should contact: Professor Ian Loader or Professor Alison Young.
