About the conference

This premier annual event brings together researchers, academics, policy makers and practitioners with an interest in criminology and associated disciplines to discuss research findings and exchange ideas.

The networks established at these conferences have led to collaboration across the globe on crime and justice issues. The event provides an excellent opportunity to exhibit the latest criminological and related research as well as policy initiatives from Africa and beyond.
