Simon Green

Associate Dean for Research & Enterprise / Reader in Criminology

Biography I studied Sociology at Kingston University before moving to Hull to undertake my MA and PhD in Criminology. I spent two years as a research officer on a Home Office funded burglary reduction project in the North England before becoming a Lecturer in Community Justice and Criminology in 2001. This role was externally funded by the Home Office and focused on training probation officers across the Yorkshire and Humberside region (as well as in North Wales). In 2009 I moved into a mainstream teaching and research position.
Research Interests My doctoral research explored the theoretical, ideological and political conception of community in the crime control arena. Since then my research interests have developed around: restorative justice, power and agency, victimology and reducing re-offending. Most recently these research interests have consolidated around the victims of crime and exploitation. I am currently the Vice-Chair of a EU-funded COST Action (CA18121: Cultures of Victimology: Understanding processes of victimisation across Europe) and CI on a British Academy project called: 'Giving Victims' Voice: a strengths-based investigation into victim identities'.
Teaching and Learning In my current role as Associate Dean for Research I do not undertake a great deal of classroom teaching but my areas of teaching expertise are in: restorative justice, victimology, police investigation, criminological theory, social theory, crime and deviance, criminal justice politics.

I spent many years delivering criminal justice modules to probation trainees and have significant experience of developing and delivering online distance taught courses in partnership with other universities and training providers. I have also developed new degrees in BA Criminology with Forensic Science, BA Criminology and Sociology, MA Restorative Justice (online) and MA Criminal Justice and Crime Control.
