PSSC Criminality Conference

The Philippine Social Science Council (PSSC), in partnership with Philippine Criminal Justice Researchers Society (PCJRS), and International Alert Philippines, invites the public to the conference, “Beyond Politics and Spectacle: Studies in Crime and Punishment” on 15-16 March 2017 at the PSSC Auditorium, PSSCenter, Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City, featuring the work of social science scholars and criminal justice practitioners.

The conference aims to elevate the discourse on crime and punishment to a systematic, scholarly and multidisciplinary discussion level that brings forth social science tools to analyze data on criminality, socio-cultural and behavioral dimensions of illegal drug use, and the social and economic aspects of the war on drugs. It further seeks to create space for an informed dialogue that addresses questions on the effectiveness and long-term impact of anti-crime strategies and approaches to punishment, including the re-imposition of capital punishment. The conference also invited officials from various agencies to give conference participants an update and answer questions on the situation, programs, and challenges facing crime control and management in the country.

Conference registration fee of P1,500 for professionals, P1,000 for graduate students, P800 for undergraduate students, and $75 for foreign participants includes abstracts, meals, and certificate of attendance. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) endorses this conference for all interested participants from higher learning institutions.
