'I attended seven of the seminars and it is clear that a great deal of time, thought and effort has gone into preparation and planning of the series. A number of talks, such as the discussion by Robert King following the showing of ‘In the land of the free’ documentary, were truly inspirational and collectively the series was a highly engaging and intellectually stimulating experience. Not only were the talks well delivered and focussed on pertinent issues of the day such as the august 2011 disturbances; the contours of sexual violence; misogyny; gendered experiences of probation hostels; and harms in contemporary society such as toxic capitalist industries in Liverpool and the local and global harms associated with the production of food, but also the discussions following the talks were extremely well informed and scholarly'

(Dr David Scott, Coordinator European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control)
Commenting on the 2011- 2012 seminar series

The critical research seminar series offers a platform for guest speakers to discuss their past, present and ongoing research within the fields of crime, criminalisation, marginalization and social exclusion; and/or their involvement with a variety of campaigning and community groups affected by such processes. Cohering with the focus and aims of the CCSE, the emphasis of the seminar series is upon critical research and/or practice. It aims in particular to provide a forum for individuals, groups, experiences and views which typically struggle to be heard.
