Cutting-edge research helping to create safe, well-governed and equitable societies
Griffith Criminology Institute (GCI) is one of the largest, most vibrant and high-performing criminology communities in the world. Through collaboration and innovation our research is helping find answers and solutions to universal problems. GCI is a world leader in the criminology field and was ranked well above world standard in the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia rankings, which were released by the Australian Research Council.
Contemporary societies face important safety, justice and equity challenges that criminological knowledge can help solve. Our research focuses on five key challenges.
GCI Insights showcases the remarkable research being conducted by members of the Griffith Criminology Institute (GCI) and is designed for policymakers, industry, students and the wider public. Through briefs, spotlights, podcasts and reports, GCI members provide expert findings and commentary on key topics in criminology and criminal justice.
A MATTER OF CRIME
In our podcast series - 'A Matter of Crime' - GCI members are interviewed by Nance Haxton, a dual Walkley award winner and former ABC journalist. These conversations address the big questions in the researcher’s field of expertise, as well as myths, challenges, and new directions.
