The call for proposals is now open. Papers and panels 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:
- Biological, Sociological, and Psychological Perspectives
- Class and Crime: How to Break the Cycle, Near-term and Long-term Solutions
- Crime and Terrorism: The Nexus
