Extremes of Human Cruelty Research Network

The Extremes of Human Cruelty Research Network draws together academics, practitioners, and other interested parties, from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to explore shared interests in human evil and cruelty.  It aims to showcase the existing work and research of the contributors, provide a forum to develop collaborative projects, generate debate and discussion, and attract further scholars, practitioners and researchers with interests in these areas.

Areas of interest include:Shackles

  • The origins of evil and cruelty
  • Perpetrators
  • Victims
  • How to identify and prevent
  • How to rehabilitate (and deal with) the perpetrators
  • How to support victims and their families
