Register Now: COVID-19 and Crime Research Seminar

I’m thrilled to have been invited by Professor Graham Farrell to speak at a research seminar showcasing recent work on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on crime and policing. The seminar is organised as part of an UKRI ESRC grant focused on Reducing the Crime Harms of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

I will be presenting my research on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on crime patterns in Mexico City, though there are other fantastic speakers presenting their research. The speakers and papers that will be presented are:

  • Shane Johnson, Manja Nikolovska & Paul Ekblom. Policing, disruption and mobilisation through Twitter. An analysis of UK law enforcement tweeting practices during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Nick Tilley, Lara Adamson & Anthony Dixon. COVID-19 and Crime: Change and Continuity on the Railway.
