The ICCC's primary mission is to conduct advanced research on the processes by which criminal behaviour is regulated and the control mechanisms put in place by public, private and community institutions. The research is done in association with students from undergraduate and graduate levels as a means to enhance their education. The research findings help promote concrete measures aimed at improving quality of life and the protection of rights and liberties. Finally, the ICCC serves as a hub for research conducted in different countries and languages.
*The mission comes from the centre's website.
