Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the field of vulnerability. We also encourage participation in and feedback through the steering group particularly from service users and those with lived experience. The Chair will be responsible for the smooth running of The British Society of Criminology Vulnerability Research Network, and will normally serve for a term of three years.
The Chair will appoint a Steering Group from amongst members to assist with the running of the Network. Approximately six months prior to the expiration of the Chair’s term, all members of the Network will be contacted, inviting those who are eligible to stand for the position. If more than one candidate comes forward, a vote of all Network members will be held. If no candidate comes forward, the existing Chair may serve for an additional 12 months.
Tenure for the chairs is three years, although renewable under the following arrangements. Re-electing the chair/co-chair will involve asking members for expressions of interest or nomination with an election if there is more than one candidate.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the field of vulnerability. If you would like to become a member of the Network, please contact [email protected]. You can follow the network on twitter @bsc_vrn and subscribe to our mailing list here.
