Professor Graham Farrell receives prestigious Ronald V. Clarke Award

The Ronald V. Clarke Award is the most prestigious award in crime science and environmental criminology, with awardees identified through voting by senior scholars in the field.

The School of Law is thrilled that Professor Graham Farrell has been presented with the Ronald V. Clarke Award for Fundamental Contributions to Environmental Criminology and Crime Analysis in Stockholm, Sweden at the international symposium on Environmental Criminology and Crime Analysis on 15 June 2023. 

The 2023 International Symposium on Environmental Criminology and Crime Analysis (ECCA) was hosted by Safeplaces network and sponsored by FORTE (Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare), the USA’s National Institute of Justice and the Stockholm Municipality. The conference aimed to advance knowledge in environmental criminology and crime analysis in both research and practice, bringing together national and international experts in the field to Stockholm. 

I am absolutely delighted to receive this award. It is the highest honour in my field of study. To receive this recognition, on the basis of nomination and voting by an international panel of scholars, means a great deal.
