Policing, criminal justice and inclusion
Our research is dedicated to improving experiences of policing and criminal justice, challenging injustices and promoting equality, inclusion, and diversity.
Our academics have published widely and are leading experts in the field, regularly consulted by practitioners, policy-makers and journalists. The research within this theme is divided into five strands:
- Desistance from crime
- Policing and criminal justice
- Educational research and pedagogy
- Diversity and inclusion
Various members of this strand are also associated with the Gender, Bodies and Sexualities Research Unit.
