The Institute for Security Studies (ISS)
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.
The call for abstracts and panel discussion proposals close on 17 July 2015. Decisions about the acceptance of abstracts will be communicated by 7 August 2015. Submit proposals for consideration using the abstract submission form to Johan Burger, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome abstracts for papers on the following:
- Theme 1: Understanding Crime and its Causes - Papers should analyse current research results on crime trends, types or crime, or offenders.
- Theme 2: Tackling Corruption and Promoting the Rule of Law - Papers should reflect on current theories, debates and challenges that countries or regions are grappling with in protecting adherence to the rule of law.
- Theme 3: Supporting Victims and Perpetrators - Papers should analyse new theory, research findings, or promising initiatives about how to support victims or perpetrators.
- Theme 4: Assessing Criminal Justice Policy and Practice - Papers should reflect theory and research results on issues like police oversight, corruption in the criminal justice sector, innovative policy and practice, criminal justice approaches to crimes like sexual offences, robbery, fraud, corruption and commercial crime.
- Theme 5: Crime and Violence Prevention - Papers should analyse promising crime prevention practice and innovation within the broad ambit of situational and social crime prevention, and discuss new theories of crime prevention.
