Institute on Crime and Public Policy

Institute on Crime and Public Policy

The Institute on Crime and Public Policy was established in 2005 to support scholarship on legal, empirical, and normative issues concerning crime and public policy. Participating faculty are involved in projects that cluster into four categories: American sentencing and corrections, comparative criminal procedure and process, normative theories of punishment, and crime control policy. The Institute is the home of four major publication series, including Crime and Justice: A Review of Research, and sponsors two scholarly conferences each year, along or in collaboration with various European research institutes.
