Welcome to the Centre for Analytic Criminology.

The core aim of the Centre for Analytic Criminology is to advance, through theory development and empirical testing, a general, dynamic and mechanism-based explanation of crime and its causes to inform effective crime prevention policies and practices.  The staff members of the Centre represent a multi-disciplinary background. We have an  extensive network of international collaborators.  

The centre’s activities focus around:

  1. The development and refinement of Situational Action Theory (SAT)
  2. The testing of key propositions of SAT in the prospective longitudinal Peterborough Adolescent and Young Adult Development Study (PADS+)
  3. The building and maintenance of an international network of research collaborations
  4. The development of key policy and practise implications of the centre’s research
  5. The dissemination of the findings to policy-makers and practitioners 

Our main research projects are:

  • Peterborough Adolescent and Young Adults Development Study
  • Neurogenetics and differential susceptibility to criminogenic social environments: How do young people develop and express crime propensities?
