Institute of Social Justice and Crime (ISJ&C)

 We are delighted to announce that a pan-University Institute of Social Justice and Crime (ISJ&C) has been established at the University of Suffolk.  

ISJ&C is an intellectual and operational vehicle at the University of Suffolk for conducting applied research in social science, humanities and its cognate fields. We are committed to the development of transformational research through which to explore new areas of enquiry from a transdisciplinary perspective to provide real life solutions to key social problems.  

To achieve this goal, we are consolidating and building on our efforts by growing our vibrant cross-disciplinary research community around one of our identified areas of distinctiveness: Social Justice and Crime.  We aim to attract and hold a greater number of research-active staff and funding within this new institute.  

As a pan-University research institute, our intention is to continue to respond to the research needs of our community. We have made great strides already in achieving this objective, and we will continue to build on our contributions to research, knowledge and practice to address pressing social problems that face our society

If you would like more information on our research or to explore collaborative opportunities, please do get in touch with the Associate Dean of Research, Dr Sarah Richards:
