Intersectionality: How do multiple sources of disadvantage combine and reinforce over an individual’s time within the justice system? How does intersectionality affect individual experiences and outcomes?


The overarching themes that structure this ARI are closely linked, with several questions and issues that cut across them. Some extend beyond MoJ and reflect the interests of other government departments. We want to encourage research that is tangential across multiple objectives and outcomes to develop a holistic approach to analysis that supports policy and operational decision-making. This section outlines cross-cutting themes and approaches that can be considered across our research priorities.
