Evidence based policy
The Evidence based policy series aims to offer critical and innovative perspectives on the scope, purpose and context of criminological research funded and published by the UK government. Through the publication of the series the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies hopes to further constructive debate on how such research is managed in the public interest.
The following publications are part of the series:
- Critical thinking about the uses of research
- CDS Direct: Flying in the face of evidence
- The social costs of dangerousness: prison and the dangerous classes
- Family intervention projects: a classic case of policy-based evidence
- Estimating drug harms: a risky business?
Two issues of the Centre's magazine, Criminal Justice Matters, have also considered the relationship between the evidence and policy making:
