The ICCC’s uniqueness lies in its hybrid approach. Whereas a fine line has traditionally divided the mainstream study of crime and offenders from the more critically-driven study of social control and reactionary approaches, ICCC researchers over the past decade have gradually blurred this criminological dichotomy into a common framework. The centre’s contributions are firmly entrenched within the merger of these two approaches.
To adapt to the new research projects and members within the ICCC, the centre’s scientific program was completely revamped in 2016. Covering a multitude of research areas, this new program’s originality resides in its global approach and focus on the two main forms of social control: intervention and regulation. The new program is comprised of 5 thrusts, which are each divided in 3 distinct research themes. This general focus places the centre at the forefront of criminological research. By combining a mix of traditional criminological issues and problems (thrusts 1 and 2) with the emerging « new criminologies » (thrusts 3, 4, and 5), the ICCC offers a dynamic and interactive research environment for its many members and their diverse expertise.
