Community Justice and the 'Big Society'

This study, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, is exploring the scope for, and potential benefits of, community involvement in the delivery of criminal justice in England and Wales. It will focus, in particular, on deprived neighbourhoods where the need for effective community engagement is greatest. What we hope to achieve is to find some practical ways of transforming the rhetoric of community engagement into reality in poor communities.

Euro-Justis

ICPR was the coordinator of Euro-Justis, a large-scale 40-month EU project funded under Framework Programme 7, which has just finished. The project developed a suite of survey measures to measure public trust in justice and public perceptions of the legitimacy of justice. It has led to a module on trust in justice in the 2010 European Social Survey, and analysis on this will start in the Autumn. The Euro-Justis final report can be found at www.eurojustis.eu. ICPR is a member of a consortium that is currently negotiating a follow-on FP 7 project with the European Commission.
