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.
