21 June 1996

For almost 25 years the Australian Institute of Criminology has been an academic leader in criminology both within Australia and internationally. During 1995 the Institute was refocussed to concentrate its efforts on policy research.

To ensure continuity of its long standing research activities and to maintain strong links with the academic community the Institute has recently appointed a number of leading academics as Associates of the Australian Institute of Criminology.

The Associates will represent the interests of the Australian Institute of Criminology in their home city and, where appropriate, work jointly with the Institute to further the activities of the Australian Institute of Criminology in that city. Appointment will be for two years and will be conditional on Associates contributing tangibly to the Australian Institute of Criminology program or product. This contribution will be negotiated with the Director.
