The Conference will take place at School of Law, Bartolomé House, Winter Street, Sheffield, UK, S3 7ND on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th April.

The Keynote Speakers include:

R. A. Duff (Philosophy, Stirling)
Fergus McNeill (Criminology and Social Work, Glasgow)
Lisa Miller (Political Science, Rutgers)

Criminal law sets the outermost limits around liberal citizenship – the clearest and most explicit “Thou Shalt Nots” in societies characterised by a normative commitment to individual freedoms. The laws that determine which acts – and people – are criminal are therefore inherently political, not least because of the formal processes of condemnation (and empirical experience of pain delivery) that follow on from them.

The Centre for Criminological Research invites you to a two-day conference exploring the interrelations between crime, criminal justice, politics, and citizenship. We will host three keynote lectures, as well as a series of panels for paper presentations across the two days of the conference. The conference will be loosely organised around three core themes, outlined on the 'More Info' Tab:
