The Centre for Criminological Research is the focal point for criminology and criminal justice at the University of Sheffield, one of Britain's main research-led universities. A few years ago it celebrated its 30th anniversary, being one of the four original criminological centres of excellence in the UK. Reaching across the university to bring together experts from a wide-range of excellent departments, it forms a multi-disciplinary Centre conducting high quality research about key criminological subjects.
Building its international profile, the Centre encourages leading scholars from other countries to be visitors and welcomes postgraduate research students. A strong seminar series and conference programme is organised, creating a lively context to stimulate debate and to disseminate research findings to as wide an audience as possible.
