Event description

Description

The purpose is to promote interdisciplinary dialogue about topics related to criminology in its broadest context, including causes, consequences both on a micro and macro level, control and prevention. The event brings together academics, policy makers, NGOs, business and social leaders from a variety of backgrounds, for discussion about issues. The event mirrors the interest of the PSO and its partners in fostering conversation about pressing policy concerns. The event is sponsored by the Policy Studies Organization, the International Journal on Criminology, and the American Public University.

The call for proposals is now open for 2019. Papers, roundtables, panels, are invited. 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. Papers and panels are invited as well on gun control, including the role of the NRA and issues on a state and municipal level. Other topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Impeachment
  • Class and Crime
  • Community Policing
  • Crime and Terrorism
  • Crime Prevention
  • Criminal Behavior
  • Criminal Justice Systems and Practices
  • Criminal Justice Systems, Reform & Practices
  • Criminology Theory
  • Cybercrime
  • Ethical Issues
  • Forensic Science
  • Gender Issues
  • Issues of Recidivism
  • Juvenile Delinquency and Crime
  • Mass Incarceration
  • Penology
  • Police Education and Training Reforms
  • Pro-active Policing

  • White Collar Crime

The Broad Scope of Criminology:

The Policy Studies Organization and Westphalia Press are comitted to a very broad view of criminology and to supporting the subject not only in the classroom and in academic research, but in its practice by the bar, law enforcement, and judicial professionals. We also welcome those who offer analysis and insight through fiction and art, as indeed we do in all our conferences. Our umbrella is a big one and we invite participation by both scholars and, we emphasize, by practitioners. An aim of the conference is to promote interchange between people working in various aspects of the subject who might otherwise not meet, and to publish the papers that are given in both journal and book form, and to make the presentations available in online video for their use in teaching and training.

To submit a proposal:
