Dawes Centre for Future Crime at UCL



Can we predict new and evolving crimes? And if we can predict them, can we prevent them?

Our research aims to anticipate how technological or social change might create new opportunities for offending, and to propose methods for addressing these problems before they become established. Research will focus on a mixture of evolving current crimes, new crimes about which little is known, and crimes that are likely to emerge in the near or medium- to long-term time horizons.
