Experimentation, implementation, and evaluation: including exploring, developing and testing new ideas or methods using innovative pre-experimental and evaluation approaches and randomised control trials; how to measure the impact and effectiveness of public service interventions in a human-centric manner; advances in pre- and quasi-experimental methods; theory-based evaluation and value-for-money evaluation.

Background

We want to build our internal capability to apply cutting-edge analytical and research methodologies. We are keen to engage with researchers across a range of disciplines, to explore how innovative methods could be applied to justice research.
