CCRC in new call for research

The independent public body which investigates alleged miscarriages of justice in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is inviting new proposals for research projects. 

The Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) Research Committee promotes and manages serious independent academic research which makes use of CCRC casework records and data to study matters relevant to miscarriages of justice and the wider justice system.

While there is no funding attached to this call the CCRC are offering access to data, relevant contact details, support for funding applications if appropriate, and publication of resulting theses/reports/papers on its website and, where appropriate, reference to relevant findings in its annual report.

They will also report any relevant findings in a bid to improve the Criminal Justice System to prevent miscarriages of justice.

Deadline for submissions and criteria is 29th January 2021 and you can find out out the application criteria at their website
