The Centre for Restorative Justice (CRJ) is the world leader in experimental and theoretical research on the design and cost-effectiveness of restorative responses to crime. Its mission is to produce, synthesise and apply primary field studies wherever they can be conducted, translating that research into evidence-based policies around the world.
The Centre’s global work is focused on the Jerry Lee Program on Randomized Controlled Experiments in Restorative Justice, in affiliation with the Jerry Lee Centre for Experimental Criminology at the University of Cambridge, the Jerry Lee Center for Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania and the United Kingdom-based Justice Research Consortium. The Lee Program is co-directed by Heather Strang and Lawrence Sherman, Wolfson Professor of Criminology at the University of Cambridge.
The Centre for Restorative Justice comprises academic staff from the RegNet, including research and postdoctoral fellows, postgraduate students and research support staff.
The Centre for Restorative Justice has received over $15 million in research grants since it began operating in 1995.
