Criminology and Forensic Science in India
An Interesting Hubber Question
Professional and Educational Conferences
Searching the Internet for information about degree programs in Criminology and Forensic Science is difficult, because first search results yield only a list of blogs that contain partial information that is not helpful. A different type of search is necessary.
If one is residing in India, then a yearly conference regarding criminology is a good place to start looking for professionals and educators in the field. This is the All India Criminology Conference combined with the International Criminology Conference of the Indian Society of Criminology.This large conference is held annually. The 2009 edition was held at the University of Kashmir in October 2009 with the theme of Criminal Justice System: Challenges and Future Agenda.
The University of Kashmir, then, is a good place to start looking for help in crafting an educational background, internship, and career in Criminology in India.
A recent conference looked at the following topics under its theme:
- Criminal Justice System: Formal and Informal Practices
- Women Empowerment: Role of National Commission for Women and State Commission for Women
- Criminal Justice System: Towards Social Classes and Territorial Perspectives: Privileged and Underprivileged; Urban and Rural Crimes, and Adult and Youth Crimes
- Prison Management : Recent Trends
- Developmental Processes: Role of the Criminal Justice Administration
- Research and Development: Criminological Sectors
- White Collar Crime with special emphasis on: Corporate Crimes and Cyber Crimes
