Crime and Governance

Follow @TASA_CaG on Twitter!

Aims and objectives:

This thematic group brings together TASA members with research interests in how crime, deviance, governance and social control are understood and operate within society. The group is convened to facilitate an interdisciplinary and collegial forum designed to foster the collaboration of members from across different fields of sociology, criminology and social psychology. It places a strong focus on the engagement of researchers at all points of their careers, and emphasises the inclusion and participation of early career and postgraduate researchers, and members with broader interests in, but not limited to, youth crime and detention; Indigenous incarceration; prisoner health; welfare and policy; urban marginality; risk; and power.

This thematic group aims to support sociological research primarily through the presentation of papers at the annual TASA conference and through the organisation of thematic group workshops on current and emerging issues within the crime and governance space. The group encourages lively and constructive debate among members, and promotes a forum where members can network, establish valuable research partnerships and participate in ongoing peer mentorship and scholarship via informal reviews on draft papers. The thematic group strongly supports publicly engaged research aimed at increasing the public profile of this area of sociology.
