21 March 2012

The Sydney Institute of Criminology is collaborating with the Applied Criminology Centre (ACC) at the University of Huddersfield.

Garner Clancey from the Institute of Criminology says it hopes to strengthen relations with colleagues at the University of Huddersfield.

"Their work on crime prevention through environmental design is of interest to many people in Australia and is particularly relevant to some research being undertaken at the Institute," he says.

"The ongoing possibilities for collaboration are very exciting.

"We look forward to trialling video conferencing guest lectures and to exploring joint research opportunities."

In the coming weeks, Leanne Monchuk- a researcher with the Applied Criminology Centre (ACC) at the University of Huddersfield- is scheduled to take part soon in a live, interactive teaching session withpostgraduate criminology students at Sydney Law School.

The Institute is also looking to explore further opportunties for research, teaching and consultancy collaboration.
