WELCOME TO THE HOME OF HOMICIDE RESEARCH WORKING GROUP

Though homicide research, dataset development, and intervention programs literally involve life-and-death issues, work in lethal violence had been scattered among numerous disciplines and largely uncoordinated.

In order to address this problem, practical and academic homicide experts from criminology, public health, demography, medicine, sociology, criminal justice, and a variety of other disciplines created the Homicide Research Working Group.

We welcome individuals from both the academic and practitioner communities who are interested in understanding and preventing lethal violence, both in the homicides themselves and situations (e.g., domestic violence) that can result in murder.




UPCOMING MEETINGS

Our annual meeting planning is currently underway! This year's meeting will be held in Memphis, TN from June 7 - 10, 2017.

Nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Carolyn Rebecca Block Award (Outstanding Contribution by a Practitioner) and the Richard Block Award (Outstanding Thesis and/or Dissertation).  These awards honor the contributions of Becky Block and Dick Block -- both founding members of the Homicide Research Working Group -- to homicide research, practice, and to the organization. Winners will be announced at the 2017 annual meeting. For more information, click here.
