New Criminology Research Grants awarded by the Australian Institute of Criminology

The AIC has announced important new funding that will support Australian academics to undertake cutting edge crime and justice research. We are pleased to announce eight new Criminology Research Grants, which have been selected by the Criminology Research Advisory Council and approved by the AIC Director.

These projects address a range of policy-relevant issues, including sex offender reintegration, the use of apps and video conferencing in prisons, youth offending, firearms, body-worn cameras, and the criminalisation of coercive control.

Australian Institute of Criminology Director, Mr Michael Phelan APM said that these projects cover a range of contemporary crime and justice issues.

“The evidence they will generate will be vital for shaping future policy. We look forward to working closely with the successful project teams,” Mr Phelan said.


The Criminology Research Grants (CRG) program is administered by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) and aims to support research relevant to current and future public policy issues, to foster quality criminological research and to ensure that funded research is disseminated effectively.
