About the Irish Criminology Conference:

The 'North/South' Irish Criminology Conference has grown in success since it first began in 2005. 

Perhaps it is best left to Prof. Ian O'Donnell, Director of the UCD Institute of Criminology, and Ireland's leading criminologist, to articulate the significance of the conference.

Ian sums up the 'North/South' conference's unique position in the Irish academic calender as follows:

  'It is important that like minded individuals come together to exchange ideas and to keep abreast of research. The Irish Criminology Conference has grown in popularity each year, assited by the absence of any registration fee, and this showed that criminology and criminal justice were well on there way to becoming established areas of scholarly inquiry in Ireland. Most of the universities on the island were represented on the conference programme[s]. In addition, delegates travel from England, Scotland, Wales, Australia and the United States.

Those who attend the Irish Criminology Conference are a disparate bunch; more varied in background than found at similar meetings elsewhere. They are drawn from academia, the voluntary sector, the Department of Justice Equality & Law Reform, the legal profession and An Garda Síochána. Some are experts of long-standing, others have interest that is more peripheral, but all are curious about the potential of criminology to address important social issues. One of the key aims of the gathering is to create a meaningful dialogue between researchers and policy makers as well as enhancing mutual understandings.' http://www.irishcriminology.wordpress.com/
