Steve Tombs

Before joining The Open University in January 2013 I worked at Liverpool John Moores University where, since 1998, I was Professor of Sociology. There, over 21 years, I taught across Schools of Business, Law and, latterly, Social Science and Humanities.

I am Director of the International Centre for Comparative Criminological Research.

I have long-standing interests in the incidence, nature and regulation of corporate crime and harm, and in particular the regulation and ‘management’ of health and safety at work, and have published widely on these matters.

I was a founding Member and Chair (1999-2009) of the Centre for Corporate Accountability. The CCA was an independent, not-for-profit advice, research and advocacy organisation. I have continued to work with the wider Hazards Movement, the Institute of Employment Rights and theInternational Campaign for Justice in Bhopal.

I am currently a member of the Editorial Boards of Policy and Practice in Health and Safety and State Crime.
