Japan is one of the most safe and secure countries in the world. We are creating a Japanese and English curriculum based on the results of research conducted by the Criminology Research Center (CrimRC) and will disseminate it within and outside Japan.
A key challenge is to construct an educational program of Japanese Criminology, whilst also meeting the needs of foreign students who would benefit from learning about law, society and culture in Japan.

In this fall, we have organized a series of trial classes of Japanese Criminology in which we shall first provide a lecture entitled “Criminology in Asia” by Prof. Dr. Setsuo MIYAZAWA, President of Asian Criminological Society (ACS), followed by a variety of information and knowledge concerning criminal statistics, victim surveys, drug policy, the penal system and criminal justice (police, prosecution, trials, corrections and rehabilitation). Attendance is possible at these classes, and we encourage both foreign and Japanese students to participate.

Ryukoku University will host the Asian Criminological Society Conference in the fall of 2020.
