Violence Research Centre


On Friday 11 October, the Institute of Criminology opened its doors to prospective students and researchers to showcase its wide range of research projects. The VRC, alongside other research centres, contributed with posters and speakers. Students and visitors were treated to lectures, poster displays and a communal lunch. Our posters featured an overview of research projects and three specific studies: EBLS, z-proso and cyberbullying. EBLS and z-proso are headed by Prof Manuel Eisner, Director of the VRC, the latter study is a collaboration with the University of Zurich. Affiliated researchers Prof Izabela Zych and Prof Vicente J. Llorent provided another poster, alongside the findings of the z-proso study. This poster covered research on cyberbullying, a project headed by Prof David Farrington.

Dr Justice Tankebe was the chair of the early afternoon panel, which featured Dr Paolo Campana, our expert on smuggling and organised crime. Other speakers included Dr Beth Hardie, Prof Loraine Gelsthorpe, Director of the Institute, and Dr Caroline Lanskey. 

Dr Paolo Campana and Prof Manuel Eisner met their PhD students during the lunch break. The afternoon panel's Q&A, chaired by Dr Ben Crewe, was a lively discussion. Speakers included Prof Alison Liebling, Prof Larry Sherman and Prof Manuel Eisner.
