Professeur Irvin Waller aborde les nouvelles statistiques démontrant une augmentation de 9% de l'indice de gravité de la criminalité en Ontario en 2016. Alors que le Canada témoigne une augmentation de 1%, l'indice est tout de même 29% inférieur à celui de 2006.

Justin Piché

There are many reasons for being proud of the quality and relevance of the work being done in the Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa. We are pleased to announce two additional reasons for being proud of the work done by our colleagues.

Justin Piché has been selected as the recipient of the Faculty of Social Sciences Young Researcher of the Year 2016, underlining the exceptional quality of the research work of a professor in an early stage of career. Read more about Justin's research initiative here

Michael Kempa has been selected as the recipient of the 2016 Faculty of Social Sciences Award for Activities in the Media, highlighting his exceptional contribution in the media and on the public scene.

Michael Kempa

Michael Kempa is a social scientist with the spirit of an investigative journalist: he considers these parallel domains of public-interest scholarship. With professional experience inside the CBC, Postmedia, and other major news providers, Michael seizes opportunities in the shifting media and university landscapes to maximise mutual and public benefit.  Rather than simply having academics comment on the news or write up their own research for popular consumption, this new form of collaboration starts right at the stage of research design and data collection, and carries on through analysis and dissemination. The 2016 Faculty of Social Sciences Award for Activities in the Media or Community will provide resources to drive his work forward.

These awards are well deserved. They give us the opportunity to congratulate our colleagues for their exceptional contribution to the intellectual and scientific life of the Faculty and of our Department.

Congratulations to both of them!
