This research group addresses current-day legal and policy issues facing the community, legal profession, government, and regulators – specifically related to Victoria and Australia.
Our criminology research is cutting edge, and is placing Victoria as a leader in these areas:
- social welfare
- correctional institutions
- cyber security
- money laundering
- national and transnational crime
- regulatory design and development.
We also undertake research to better understand the interconnectedness between law and criminology, through exploring the issues contemporary societies face, and important safety, justice and equity challenges that criminological knowledge can help solve.
