Crime & Violence Prevention
Our staff and network of affiliated researchers work with nonprofits and government agencies to design and implement randomized evaluations to test questions on how best to improve the equity and functionality of the criminal justice system, and current and completed projects in this area cover a range of related topics.
Through the Special RFP for Criminal Justice Reform, J-PAL affiliates and invited researchers are invited to submit proposals for randomized evaluations to test questions regarding mechanisms for criminal justice reform.
J-PAL North America currently has dedicated staffing and funding to support projects in this area. Please contact Kalila Jackson-Spieker to learn more.
