Cambridge Global Challenges


Building on recent comparative and historical research on the institutional, cultural and political-economic factors shaping crime and punishment, this conference aims to advance understanding of whether, and if so how and why, social and economic inequality influences levels and types of crime and punishment, and conversely the impact of different levels and types of crime and punishment on various forms of inequality.

Inequality is receiving increasing attention from social scientists and policy-makers alike. Whilst criminal justice scholars have long recognised that levels of inequality correlate with rates of crime and punishment, the causal mechanisms underlying these correlations are less well understood.

This conference features a wide range of speakers, and will be convened by Dr Leonidas Cheliotis (LSE), Professor Nicola Lacey (LSE), Professor David Soskice (LSE), and Dr Sappho Xenakis (University of London).
