Core competencies

Launched in January 2007, the Leuven Institute of Criminology (LINC) is composed of about seventy professors and assistants involved in criminological research and education within the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology of the K.U.Leuven Faculty of Law. LINC is the most recent institutional incarnation of the criminological tradition in Leuven that started with the establishment of the School for Criminology in 1929. LINC intends to continue the Leuven tradition of combining solid research with a deep commitment to society. This goal is achieved through fundamental as well as policy-oriented research that is organized around 10 research lines:
* Political Crimes, Human Rights and Human Security
* Serious and Organized Crime
* Youth Criminology
* Victims and Victim Policies
* Restorative Justice
* Offenders, sentencing and penal measures
* Police and the Judiciary
* Criminal Justice Policy and Administration
* Person-centered criminology
* Forensic mental health care and treatment
