About the Journal

The Indian Society of Criminology (ISC) was established in the year 1970, with the objectives of advancing the study and application of Criminology and Allied Sciences, for the welfare of the society. It also endeavoured to facilitate cooperation among persons interested in the prevention and control of crime, which has escalated over time. Over a short span, the ISC developed into a pioneering National organisation, due to the cumulative efforts of its dedicated founders. The society was initiated by professionals, namely, Professor T. E. Shanmugam; Mr. Pitchandi; Justice V. R. Krishna Iyer; Mr. Pon Paramaguru, IPS; Professor K. Chockalingam; and Mr. K. Mani.  Lately, this enterprise has extended and decided to promote Criminological education and advanced Research in the area of Criminology, and it is in this spirit that the Indian Society of Criminology (ISC) organises an International Conference every year, at different locations. A platform that has now become a major attraction for budding Criminologists, to shape their thinking and invite interest towards the interdisciplinary field of Criminology.
