The Justice Collaboratory brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and researchers at Yale University and elsewhere to work on issues related to institutional reform and policy innovation and advancement. We infuse theory and empirical research in order to achieve our goal of making the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic.

Justice Forward is the Justice Collaboratory’s vision for rethinking and reforming the criminal justice system. We are forging a new path grounded in the idea that if we are to build a fair and effective system, we must 1) arrest the persistence of inequality and draw down the concentration of criminal justice exposure that itself can become criminogenic, 2) focus on mobilizing and engaging members of the community as co-producers of justice, and 3) be mindful of the fact that offending and victimization are concentrated and intertwined within the same small social networks. The Justice Collaboratory will pursue this vision through the production of innovative and collaborative research, policy engagement, training, and outreach.
