    What We're Exploring: Cities, Information, and Governance

    NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT — Founded in 2014 at the Yale Law School, the Justice Collaboratory brings together scholars and researchers of diverse theoretical and methodological orientation to work on issues related to institutional reform, policy innovation, and advancement within the field of procedural justice. The organization's goal is to fuse theory, empirical research, and targeted clinical trials to achieve a collective understanding that makes the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic. The award will support planning to develop research in procedural justice, including advancing the scholarly agenda, engaging community organizers within cities where procedural justice concepts are tested, cultivating partner cities for testing on the ground, and developing the next generation of criminal justice scholars. The organization will seek to conduct field-leading research in the criminal justice arena and apply its insights to reduce violence, while increasing trust and justice in marginalized communities.
