Remind me

I appreciated the effort to create a diverse student body

Criminological research at the Willem Pompe Institute

The MA in Global Criminology curriculum closely reflects the staff’s research interests and expertise. Criminological research at the Willem Pompe Institute at Utrecht University is multidisciplinary and critical, with a strong international and comparative dimension. The research staff work on both small and larger research projects, mainly in cooperation with anthropologists, psychologists and criminal lawyers. The research is predominantly based on qualitative and ethnographic methods (fieldwork) combined with normative and legal approaches.

Study Association

Utrecht University hosts a very active study association for Global Criminology students: Criminologists Crossing Borders. Read more about Criminologists Crossing Borders on this page
