Ministry of Justice: areas of research interest 2018

This document sets out the high-level areas of research interest for MOJ with the aim of supporting ongoing and new engagement with the external research community.



This document summarises MOJ’s evidence needs over the next 3 to 5 years, aligned with the department’s strategic objectives for the system. For each objective we have provided a high-level narrative that frames our research priorities, as well as a set of more detailed research questions. MOJ will use this ARI as a basis to engage with academics and research organisations from across the justice research landscape and the disciplinary spectrum.

Please contact if you wish to discuss any aspect of the ARI, provide feedback, or explore ways to engage and collaborate.
