Policing is changing.  Research jointly produced by academics, police officers and policing staff is co-producing the knowledge for evidence-based policing, which is having real impact: from traditional crime prevention to demand reduction and change agents for frontline working. Research at Lancaster University includes sociology, criminology and others, with support from statistics and computing. The N8 Policing Research Partnership and ESRC funds further support this research.

This Violence and Society UNESCO Centre Research Day workshop on Wednesday 13 December 2017 aims to bring together researchers from Lancaster University to share the latest research, debate new ideas, develop networks of potential collaborators, and explore opportunities for further research.

We invite submissions of either 150 word abstracts (or title) for presentations of 15 minutes and 15 minutes of discussion; or 100 word abstracts for 5-minute ‘lightning’ talks.
Please send your title and abstract to: violenceandsociety@lancaster.ac.uk by Monday 27 November 2017.
