Ireland’s first ever residential Autumn Criminology School for Doctoral Researchers will be held at the stunning location of Blackwater Castle in Co. Cork on the 25th to the 30th of September 2016.
The residential Criminology School will be led by highly esteemed Irish and international criminologists with input from key policy makers and NGOs.
Funded by the Irish Research Council the School aims to:
- Create a space in which criminologists at all career stages can engage in knowledge exchange, theory testing and methodological debates;
- Create an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional network of criminological researchers that connects PhD students, with early career and advanced researchers;
- Better articulate the importance of innovative, multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to research;
- Foster an understanding of the importance of creating and sustaining links between criminological research and social policy by providing a forum for researchers and policy makers to meet and discuss common priorities.
Activities on each day will be related to one of five key themes including: (a) Theoretical frameworks and Literature; (b) Methodology; (c) Publication and Career development; (d) Interdisciplinary, Multidisciplinary and Comparative Approaches and (e) Policy Implications. The School will also feature a number of themed Roundtable Discussions on topics including: Public Criminology, White Collar Crime; Intersections of Policy and Research.
