Crime and Networks Workshop

  • Deakin Downtown 727 Collins Street, Tower 2, Level 12 Docklands, VIC, 3008 Australia (map)

This workshop will provide an overview of recent research that has used a network lens to understand, prevent and disrupt crime. The workshop will be hosted by A/Prof Chad Whelan (Deakin University) and A/Prof David Bright (Centre for Crime Policy and Research, Flinders University). 

Funding for this workshop was provided by a Criminology Research Grant (CRG/49/16-17).
