Griffith Criminology Institute
Founded in 2015, the establishment of the Griffith Criminology Institute reflects the culmination and solidification of the community of criminology, crime and justice scholars from across the University who collectively represent one of the largest, most vibrant and high performing criminology communities in the world. The Institute will provide greater consolidation of research support and infrastructure and will enable greater collaboration between Griffith researchers involved in criminology and stakeholders from across Australia and the international criminology community.
Our vision is to produce cutting-edge knowledge that helps create safe, just, well-governed and equitable societies.
Areas of particular strength include early prevention and crime across the life course, causes and prevention of violence, organisational crime and its control, policing and security studies, crime science, conventional and innovative justice, corrections, and the research-policy nexus. Research areas and programs have been identified, drawing on the strengths of Griffith Criminology and composed into six flagship themes:
