  • Produce high-quality, internationally recognised research in relation to crime and criminal justice;
  • Advance understanding of crime and criminal justice through theoretical, empirical and applied research;
  • Work with communities, policy makers and the wider public to collaboratively build just societies;
  • Support the development criminological research capacity across Scotland and provide an inclusive forum for this regardless of SCCJR membership.
