Towards Justice project

Towards Justice is a nine-month project exploring criminal justice approaches to addressing historical wrongs in the UK; in particular, the role of the police in promoting successful and enduring reconciliation and supporting the pursuit of wider social justice.

We are launching this project with three webinars to set the scene for our summer conference, which will lead to the publication of a summary report with recommendations for policymakers and policing and criminal justice practitioners.
