Working Groups & National Reps.

Working Groups bring together members of the European Group around different themes, uniting researchers and activists across the world. They ensure that the European Group remains active between its annual conferences, organising study days, seminars and conferences. These groups are a long tradition in the European Group but have just been revived recently. They are by no means mutually exclusive - much of their work overlaps, reflecting the overall values and concerns of the European Group. Members may be involved in several groups at once.

There are now five working groups in existence:

  • Prisons, Punishment and Detention Working Group,
  • Policing and Security Working Group and
  • Crimes of the Powerful Working Group
  • Social Harm Working Group
  • Fear and looting in the periphery: Approaching global crime and harm in (and from) the south(s)
  • Historical, philosophical and artistic approaches on the study of deviance and social control

If any members would like to establish a new working group, please just get in touch with the coordinator.
