Welcome to the team!
The ICPC is proud to announce that a new member has joined its network, which is the IECRIMT, Instituto de Estudios Criminológicos Transdisciplinarios (Institute of Transdisciplinary Criminological Studies). For IECRIMT, it is extremely important to collaborate with institutes, centres and universities that address criminology and safety issues. In this sense, it is important to recognize the relevance of the exchange of information, reflections and experiences between our two entities, which will allow the improvement of practices and public policies in the field of crime prevention, thus enriching the work of each.
About the Instituto d’Estudios Criminológicos Transdisciplinarios (Institute of Transdisciplinary Criminological Studies) (IECRIMT)
