Criminology and Social Policy

The Criminology & Social Policy discipline is a group of dynamic researchers promoting social justice and positive change in policy and practice. With robust local, national, and international partnerships, we work to combat gender-based violence, enhance legal and community services, and promote decolonisation. The Discipline oversees the CommunityMATTERS longitudinal survey, which delves into critical issues facing Illawarra and Shoalhaven communities, and also hosts the quarterly Criminology & Social Policy Hub.
