In recent years, design research has witnessed a “social turn” where researchers have looked to make change in social contexts as opposed to wholly commercial ends. This “social turn” has encompassed a range of activities and interventions that constitute a more “socially-driven” form of design, which suggests that researchers and practitioners from non-design disciplines are central to realising change in social situations.
DESIGN REVOLUTIONS will explore how design drives and responds to revolutionary thinking through questioning the norm, probing the now and embracing the new. For the first time IASDR will be held in the UK and will foster new thinking towards a compelling, meaningful and radical dialogue regarding the role that design plays in addressing societal and organisational issues.

The 19th conference of the ESC is an ideal moment to collectively reflect about what unifies and divides criminologists in the 21st century: roads, whether convergent or divergent, provide strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Some paths will be less trodden. Some (criminological) bridges are in desperate need of repair after years of dilapidation, other bridges have never been built strong enough to hold new ideas and pathways.
The organizing committee and the board of the ESC kindly is inviting the participants to take part in discussions on (cross)roads, bridges and new pathways in criminology.
