Conference Details : Two-day international conference to be held at Keble College, Oxford How social harms are understood, questioned and tackled can have a profound effect on how communities approach crime and justice. This conference comes at a time when communities across the world are experiencing change and uncertainly affecting how they understand themselves and challenges to the status quo. Coping with, responding to and supporting such uncertainty and change brings challenges for political institutions, criminal justice agencies and civic society in developing values, strategies and systems. We will bring together academics, policy makers, practitioners and those directly affected by the criminal justice system to discuss, reflect on and suggest alternative strategies. The Howard League’s conference will consider the intersection of issues relating to crime, justice and social harms. Building on the Howard League’s Commission on Crime and Problem Gambling and the burgeoning international concern around it, we are keen to explore the impact of problem gambling on patterns of crime and the societal harms that link crime and problem gambling. The Howard League is looking for papers from academics, policy makers, practitioners, PhD students and researchers from within the criminological and legal disciplines, however we are also keen to include contributions from fields of study including philosophy, geography, political science and economics. We will consider theoretical, policy, practice-based and more innovative contributions around a wide range of issues that encompass the broad theme of justice and the wider conference themes.
