The 4th International Conference on Crime and Justice in the Caribbean will be held February 8-11, 2006 at The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago. The theme of the conference is “New Challenges in Crime and Justice – From Research to Policy.” The conference is being hosted by the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice and the Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of the West Indies (St. Augustine Campus) and is intended to bring together scholars doing research on crime and justice in the Caribbean, and as well, international colleagues engaged in current criminological research that might contribute to the development of the discipline.

There have been three Caribbean conferences held thus far. The first was held in Barbados (UWI, Cave Hill Campus) in 1998, with the second and third in Jamaica (UWI, Mona Campus) in 2001 and 2004. These were attended by researchers from Latin America, Europe, North America, Australia, and the Caribbean.
