Overview Edit

The research project was established to draw together existing recent evidence on online behavior and associations with criminal and antisocial behaviour amongst young people. Specifically, it was designed to explore the trajectories and pathways that lead to ‘cyber-criminality’ through a series of mixed-methodological endeavors and the integration of theoretical frameworks across criminology and psychology, including cyberpsychology and computer science. The potential pathway from technology talented curious youth, to cyber juvenile delinquent, to lone cybercriminal to organised cybercrime was considered.
