Summer School on Crime, Law and Psychology
Prague, Czech Republic
July 4-11, 2009

The organizer of European Summer/Spring Institute, Center for Public Policy, has teamed up with professors from the University of Aberdeen and Warwick University to launch a summer course for international students interested in the application of psychological approaches and research methods to criminal justice. The program aims to invite students of different backgrounds (psychology, legal studies, criminology and sociology), who are interested in the interrelatedness of crime, law and psychology and are willing to combine a challenging academic environment with the holiday excitement.

The Summer School on Crime, Law and Psychology is a one week program designed to bring undergraduate and graduate students of various nationalities and academic backgrounds (sociology, psychology, criminology and legal studies) from the USA, Eastern and Western Europe and other parts of the world to learn more about the interrelation of psychology, law and crime.

The importance of legal and psychological approaches in dealing with criminal behavior has recently become a topic for debate among scientists as well as practitioners in the criminal justice system. Psychology and law have different visions of the problem, but their intersection constitutes an important reference when dealing with criminal behaviors of individuals. In addition, methods of research used in psychology can be addressed to inform the practices and processes of the criminal justice system. In both cases, psychological knowledge is a valuable source of information, the use of which could prevent unjust situations enforced by law. The CLP is designed to bring together the issues connecting crime, psychology and law and demonstrate the significance of this connection in dealing with criminality.

The program fee for early-bird applications: 680 EUR
