CRIMSA held a conference from 27-29 August 2007 with the theme : Perspectives on Crime and Criminal Justice in Africa at the University of Pretoria Conference Centre. This was the first conference held by CRIMSA since 1999. This conference was a resounding success all round with more than 100 delegates attending three days of presentations, discussions, deliberations and debate. Although there were a few late withdrawals a total of 53 presentations in breakaway sessions were made with another six international speakers presenting in daily plenary sessions. Across the board presentations on a wide variety and range of topics stimulated much discussion, questions and debate with even more networking and meeting of similar minded academics and students occurring at tea time and during lunches. An innovation at this year's conference was the encouragement given to postgraduate students to submit 'works-in-progress' papers.
