The CCGSJ reading group will meet at 12.30pm on Tuesday 13th December.  We will look at two articles from the British Journal of Criminology vol 56 no 5:

Stone R (2016) Desistance and Identity Repair: Redemption Narratives as Resistance to Stigma

Radcliffe P and Hunter G (2016) ‘It Was a Safe Place for Me to Be’: Accounts of Attending Women’s Community Services and Moving Beyond the Offender Identity

Let Jane Dominey ( know if you plan to attend.

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.
