2017 International Criminology Conference

Description Proposals are now being accepted for the 2017 International Criminology Conference, which will be held on October 20 at the Historic Whittemore House in Washington, DC.

Panels and papers are invited on criminology in its broadest context, including causes, consequences (both on a micro and macro level), control and prevention. The event is being sponsored by the Policy Studies Organization, the International Journal on Criminology, and the American Public University.

We seek proposals based on the multidisciplinary study of the criminal phenomenon, making use of the humanities and social sciences to understand the crime, the criminal, the victim, criminality, and society's reaction to crime. Proposals should aim to take rigorous and critical approaches to criminality, and incorporate risk prevention and risk management strategies that take into account the dynamics of crime and the ethical and political stakes surrounding it. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Class and crime
Community Policing
Crime and Terrorism
Crime Prevention
Criminal Behavior
Criminal Justice Systems and Practices
Criminal Justice Systems, Reforms and Practices
Criminology Theory
Ethical Issues
Forensic Science
Gender Issues
Issues of Recidivism
Juvenile Delinquency and Crime
Mass Incarceration
Police Education and Training Reforms
Pro-active Policing
Solitary Confinement
Use of Parole and Probation
Using GIS and GPS
White Collar Crime

To Submit a Proposal: Proposals submitted before the early deadline of August 15, 2017 will receive priority. To submit, please email a 1-2 page proposal to PSO Executive Director Daniel Gutierrez-Sandoval at dgutierrezs@ipsonet.org.
