The programme is carefully structured and divided into three main strands: research, subject-specific training and transferable skills training. You develop a politically engaged, international understanding and approach to crime, harm and its control. The programme prepares high-level doctoral candidates to work in the widest range of employment arenas concerned with understanding, preventing and responding to crime in a way that takes account of the global and cultural context. Through the integration of over 30 associated partners it responds to both the impact and the employability agenda in Erasmus Mundus objectives.
Applicants must submit a high quality research proposal fitting DCGC research themes and demonstrate eligibility and academic achievement.

Knowledge and understanding
Addressing the urgent need for a new kind of high-level expert, the doctoral programme adopts a global perspective. Doctoral candidates conduct research which is relevant, international, transnational and intercultural and which has identified impact. Their doctoral training develops the capacity for critically informed policy-making and, in doing so, brings together in an integrated and structured way the insights of the social sciences and law.
