International Crime, Conflict, and Crisis Research Group

Global justiceCrime increases during times of conflict and crisis, as individuals and organised criminal networks take advantage of vulnerability and weakened infrastructures.  Investigating crime in these complex circumstances is challenging, and national and international prosecutions are often unsuccessful which leaves victims unable to seek justice and perpetrators who are not held to account for their crimes.

The International Crime, Conflict, and Crisis Research Network (I3CRN) brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplines and institutions, in order to promote multidisciplinary research which can contribute to a better understanding of crime in the context of conflict and crisis, and support investigations and prosecution of perpetrators.

The I3CRN network is organised around a number of research themes, all of which share the goal of supporting prosecutions for crimes committed in the context of conflict and crisis.  Click on the themes listed below for more information on our current research projects:
