The Howard League for Penal Reform Research Medal aims to identify high-quality research that offers genuine insight into the penal system and has also been effectively communicated to a non-academic audience, demonstrating a clear impact on policy and practice.
The 2013 Research Medal has been awarded to joint winners: Professors Lesley McAra and Susan McVie for the Edinburgh Study of Youth Transitions and Crime, and Professor Kevin Haines and Dr Stephen Case for their work on the Swansea youth diversion scheme. The winning entries were not only rigorous but clearly demonstrated a significant impact on practice,both working to change outcomes for young people. The winning authors have presented their research in the papers published here alongside an annex which demonstrates the impact of the research and their future dissemination plans.
