The Criminology Community
The Centre of Criminology is cosmopolitan in terms of staff and student composition; seeking to draw on those with local and global experience. We seek to produce cutting edge research in wide-ranging, specialised areas of Criminology and Public Law, as well as conduct seminal, inter-disciplinary and applied research which supports socially responsive interactions between ourselves, our partners and the public. .
Members of the Centre were engaged in different ways in South Africa's transition from apartheid, and, as the country's experience of democracy evolves, they continue to explore, educate and advise in areas associated with human rights, good governance and criminal justice both domestically and internationally. The Centre is committed to ensuring innovative and forward thinking South African and African graduates ready and able to shape the criminological debates of the future.
