British Society of Criminology Annual Conference: ‘Crime and Harm: Challenges of Social and Global Justice?'

Wednesday, July 7, 2021 - 09:00 to Friday, July 9, 2021 - 13:00
Online via Microsoft Teams

Adapting to the challenges of the past eighteen months, we are hosting the annual BSC conference online for the first time. The conference has at its centre, themes that are amongst the most pressing for criminologists (and society): the harm/crime interface; gendered harms; reflecting on justice in light of Black Lives Matter; and decolonisation. These themes are also closely linked to much of the curriculum and research at The Open University, which has always been critical and pioneering, as well as the enduring social justice and equality mission at the heart of the institution.

We are delighted to have a diverse set of plenary speakers, all of whom are internationally renowned in their respective fields of teaching and research. These speakers will be presenting from locations across the globe. This will be a rich and stimulating three days. While much of the conference programme illustrates a tight connection with the conference themes, the diversity of topics and disciplinary backgrounds within these parameters remains remarkable. So too is the mix between some well-established names in the field, up and coming early career researchers, and those just beginning to dip their toes in conference waters.

We are delighted to have received a bumper number of abstracts from around the world. All presenters have now registered for the conference.

Spaces at the conference are limited but we are pleased to announce that we now have a limited open sale of tickets for the conference. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please follow this link for more details and to register:
