Equality and Criminal Justice

The Equality and Criminal Justice Research Group is a policy-oriented research team based in the Department of Social and Historical Studies at the University of Westminster.

The initiative aims to:

  • explore, report on and advise on inequalities within the criminal justice system
  • develop research expertise and excellence on equality (race, gender, disability, faith, sexual orientation and age) and criminal justice, relating to suspects and offenders, victims (particularly of hate crime) and practitioners
  • secure funding for specific pieces of research work and publish
  • develop and disseminate policy proposals to government and criminal justice agencies and comment on emerging legislation.

The research teamĀ is committed to work with voluntary and statutory sector partners in order to commission and publish research and policy papers/briefings aimed at ensuring equal criminal justice outcomes for all members of a diverse community.
