Connecting with academics

CJA launches academic membership and annual research symposium

As part of its strategy to reimagine, redesign and rebuild the criminal justice system, the Criminal Justice Alliance (CJA) – a network of 180 charities, social enterprises, think tanks, research institutions and staff associations – wants to bring together its members and partners with academics who want to see a fairer and more effective criminal justice system.

Annual Research Symposium

09:30 – 16:45 on 3 March 2023 at University of Westminster

Trust in the police and wider criminal justice system is rightly a hot topic at the moment. But how do we measure trust? What builds trust with those impacted by the CJS and the wider public? What does trusted criminological research look like? How do we achieve systemic change together to improve trust?

Join us for a day of talks, interactive workshops, exhibitions and facilitated discussions to break down silos, explore the latest research and make connections.

We are aiming to bring together academics, practitioners, policy makers and people impacted by the CJS to share learning, insights and ideas. Discussions, short video clips and photos from the day will be used to create an open resource on Trust in the CJS.
