1st International Correctional Research Symposium

Ghent

27 Mar 2017 to 29 Mar 2017

This conference aims to focus on each stage of harnessing data at local, national and international levels, to look at current research undertaken within correctional services and by external agencies, and through discussion to share our experiences and seek ways to enhance these processes. By organising this event we hope to strengthen the global research network, raise awareness of operational and applied research projects, to search for ways to encourage greater cross-jurisdictional comparative research, especially in terms of measuring performance and/or correctional outcomes, and to begin identifying some potential solutions which can promote the development of shared data definitions and statistical comparisons cross-jurisdictionally. This event has the purpose of inviting researchers with a broad interest in criminal justice and corrections issues, especially as it pertains to the measurement of performance, quality of services and outcomes in the delivery of correctional services, as well as research managers from correctional agencies worldwide, including both prisons and community services. We also invite those working in data analysis technologies to attend and share your experiences with regards to industry recognised methods, tools and approaches for data collection and analysis.
