Youth Crime Policy - Roundtable Event

Youth Crime Policy -  Roundtable Event

How can we use research and other evidence to better inform youth crime policy decision-making?’ Roundtable event organised by the School of Law 24th January 2017 in Plassey House. This event was an expert consultation to examine the issues involved in evidence informed policy making in the area of youth crime and identify potential solutions.

The event involved academics from the School of Law; Departments of Sociology, Public Administration, Education, Psychology; Library Services; officials from the Departments of Justice and Equality and Children and Youth Affairs and Foroige, the national youth organisation.    

The input from this group will be used to inform a model of evidence review being developed by the School of Law Research Evidence into Policy, programmes and Practice (REPPP) project for application in the youth crime policy making process.
