The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) is Australia’s national research and knowledge centre on crime and justice. The AIC informs crime and justice policy and practice in Australia by undertaking, funding and disseminating policy-relevant research of national significance.
The AIC was established nearly 50 years ago and is part of the Home Affairs portfolio. The Criminology Research Advisory Council, comprised of representatives from the Australian Government and state and territory governments, advises the AIC on strategic research priorities and supports the Criminology Research Grant program. The AIC works with stakeholders both nationally and international to develop an applied research knowledge base on crime and justice issues.
The Institute’s current research priorities include illicit drugs, child exploitation material, transnational serious and organised crime, criminal justice responses to family and domestic violence, Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system and youth crime. For more information, see www.aic.gov.au.

Responsibility, Criminology at Melbourne focuses upon violence that is systematic, institutional, conflict-based, historical, representational, cultural, interpersonal, familial and societal. Offered at the undergraduate level through the Bachelor of Arts, at the graduate level through the specialised Master of Criminology, and through the Specialist Certificates in Offender Management and Forensic Disability, we equip our students with a sophisticated appreciation of global trends in crime and justice, from youth justice to corporate and international crime, drug policy to homelessness, gender violence, policing, disability and prisons.
The Master of Criminology provides an advanced understanding of crime, harm and best-practice justice innovation; our students have access to internship opportunities and industry projects, practitioner contact through guest lectures, site visits to prisons and courts, and undertake overseas intensive subjects in Oxford, Japan and Indonesia. We apply our expertise in criminal justice policy and practice, socio-legal analysis, and perpetrator and offender responses to identify ‘what works’ to prevent violence by designing, implementing and evaluating strategies that apply across a wide range of settings, with a range of staff training and professional development opportunities available.
