How to research Criminal Justice Agencies: Pre- and post-pandemic experiences and strategies
This workshop will discuss methods of researching criminal justice agencies – what existing practices can we take forward, and what innovations have been utilised and can be further developed in the future? Presentations will be given by researchers experienced in accessing and researching the police, the judiciary and the prisons. Presentations will also be given by gatekeepers and research officers from these agencies to talk about research access from their perspective.
The keynote speaker is Dr Cecilia Vindrola-Padros
of the Rapid Research Evaluation and Appraisal Lab at University College London. This will be followed by three consecutive sessions with three short presentations on each of the following themes, with time for questions and discussion:
• Researching using administrative/ online data
• Researching the police
• Researching the courts and judicial process
Time will be allocated for a final question and discussion session.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have a greater understanding of how to access and research criminal justice agencies, some of the barriers and limitations of engaging with these agencies, and how to overcome them.
Places are limited so if interested please book your place via Eventbrite.
