The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) has announced funding that will support Australian academics to undertake important crime and justice research.
AIC acting Director Matt Rippon said he was pleased to approve funding for the new projects under the Criminology Research Grants (CRG) program. The principal objectives of the CRG program are to support criminological research that is relevant to public policy and to promote the value and use of such research.
“Five projects from universities around Australia will address crime and justice policy issues including Indigenous justice, deaths in custody and sexual violence.
“The successful projects have all demonstrated their capacity to yield valuable and timely insights which are likely to be significant to criminal justice policy and practice,” Mr Rippon said.
“We look forward to collaborating with the project teams to provide us up-to-date and quality research,” Mr Rippon said.
