On Wednesday 7th July, the PHYVR team will be presenting two papers at the British Society of Criminology annual conference 2021.

The first paper is being given by Dr. Fern Gillon, Professor Susan McVie and Dr. Alistair Fraser, with the title: The Violence Revolution? Public Health, Youth and Violence Reduction in Scotland.

The second paper, entitled: Public Health Approaches to Violence Reduction: A Case of Cross-national Policy Mobility? , is being presented by Luke Billingham, Dr. Keir Irwin-Rogers and Professor Tim Newburn.

Both papers are exploratory in nature given the early stages the research, but the team is looking forward to the opportunity to develop some of their initial ideas and engaging in their first public-facing event since the project began.
