Crime, resistance and security (CRAS)

CRAS is a research cluster at the University of Brighton whos interests are described on their website:

'The activities of the CRAS research cluster combine critical approaches to the traditional concerns of criminology and criminal justice with research interests in social control, surveillance and security as well as in forms of deviance, protest and resistance. Thus, while we are interested in undertaking work which explores the operation of criminal justice systems, we are as often preoccupied by the recognition that such 'systems' are frequently dysfunctional and that justice may not always be their chief purpose or outcome.'
