In 2020-21 our work on policing and criminal justice is exploring policing and criminal justice approaches to addressing historical wrongs in society, with the aim of supporting successful and enduring reconciliation and the pursuit of wider social justice. We are drawing on the ideas and experience of police officers at all levels, with input from academics and research students, policymakers and community representatives.
Earlier this year we hosted three public webinars to kickstart these conversations, with high-profile guest panellists who are specialists in this field, and audience questions. Each webinar was accompanied by an independent briefing document, written by our freelance Research Associate, Professor Martina Feilzer. These discussions have paved the way for the 2021 Cumberland Lodge Police Conference, Towards Justice: Law Enforcement & Reconciliation on 17-18 June.
Here you will find resources relating to this work, including our webinar briefings and recordings, guest blog posts, podcasts and conference briefing document. Key findings from this work will be consolidated post-conference, into a Cumberland Lodge Report to be published later this year and launched in Westminster.
