The Centre for the Study of Crime, Criminalisation and Social Exclusion (CCSE) is based in the School of Humanities and Social Science. It was established in 2010 to provide a space for critical, rigorous, interdisciplinary research and scholarship. It was and remains a space where academics and activists work together to share and disseminate ideas with respect to the study of crime, criminalisation, social harm and state institutions. The CCSE is also committed to critically engaging with policy makers and practitioners. These interventions are designed to influence social policy and to contribute to achieving social justice for a range of socially marginalised groups.
