The Harm and Evidence Research Collaborative (HERC) draws its membership from a number of departments, including Social Policy & Criminology, Psychology, History, Sociology and the Centre for Policing Research and Learning. As such, its research expertise is widely distributed. However, in addition to the individual research being pursued by members, HERC runs an interdisciplinary programme of events and hosts specific research seminars and conferences around two main research strands.
Members have strong research interests in policing, homelessness, immigration, corporate crime, health and safety regulation, zemiology, eye witness memory, forensic cognition, sexual violence, prisons and punishment, youth justice, young people and welfare.
Details of the research interests of each HERC member are listed on the People page.
