Frank Dawtry Memorial Lecture 2013: “Reading the 2011 Riots: Disorder, Criminal Justice and ‘Public Criminology’"

13 November 2013 | 17:00h-18:30h | Lecture
Moot Court Room, Liberty Building

CCJS Public Lecture

Professor Tim Newburn, from the London School of Economics, gave the Frank Dawtry Memorial Lecture 2013. In the lecture Professor Newburn reflects on the civil disorder which struck many of England's cities in August 2011, considering the 'causes' of the riots and the nature of the political and penal response to them. Based on his experience of co-directing the award-winning 'Reading the Riots' study he also looks at the idea of 'public criminology' and explores some of the challenges of attempting to conduct rigorous social scientific research in a way, and at a speed, that allows researchers to keep pace with the worlds of policy and politics.
