The Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines including criminology, sociology, social work, law, political studies, anthropology, psychology and history. Research in our Department examines issues as diverse as the production and application of norms, public policy, social justice, intervention and the experiences of marginalized populations.
