The primary aim of the Centre is to bring together research interests relating to community sanctions (with a national, European and international focus), gender, crime and justice, and the links between criminal justice and social justice. The Centre will give students and colleagues working in these broad areas a clear identity.

A second, but not less important, aim is to use the Centre as a base from which to apply for research funding.

Thirdly, the Centre will link academic and practitioner related interests. It is hoped that the Centre will give a greater recognition to the Institute’s interests in community penalties for the benefit of M.St students who work in these areas. The centre will hold occasional seminars and workshops.

Our Aims

The primary aims of the Centre are to:

  • bring together research interests relating to community sanctions (with a European and international as well as a national focus), gender, crime and justice
  • develop the links between criminal justice and social justice
  • give students and colleagues working in these broad areas a clear identity.   

A second, but no less important, objective is to use the Centre as a base from which to apply for research funding. 

Thirdly, the Centre links academic and practitioner related interests - organising a number of workshops with members of the National Probation Service, Community Rehabilitation Companies, voluntary organisations and youth justice agencies. 

The Centre holds occasional seminars and workshops and runs a monthly reading group.
