Research environments

The research in criminology is organized in two different research environments and a stand-alone research team:

Centre for Violence Studies (CVS) 
This research environment includes one group from Criminology: Stalking and Intimate Partner Violence, SToP, and groups from other subjects/disciplines.

Biopsychosocial Criminology and Psychology
Biopsychosocial criminology and psychology is a multidisciplinary research environment that attempts to understand criminal behavior (and related outcomes, like antisocial behavior and its consequences) by considering the interactions between biological (e.g., genetics, hormones, physiology, brain structure/functioning), psychological, and sociological factors. 

Center for Criminological and Psychosocial Research (CAPS)
CAPS is a research team in criminology with the overall purpose of conducting practically useful research on norm-breaking, criminal behavior, and on psychosocial adjustment and development in a broader sense.
