This webinar showcases innovative research from the Data First programme, which is linking administrative datasets from across the justice system, and will explore how this might be achieved in Scotland.
Data First aims to unlock the potential of Ministry of Justice (MoJ) data by linking administrative datasets from across the justice system and enabling accredited researchers, from within government and academia, to access it in an ethical and responsible way.
This online webinar will:
- showcase the Data First project and its policy rationale
- explain which MoJ datasets are available and how they can be accessed
- share some emerging research findings and how these will be used to feed into criminal justice policy and practice
- include respondents from Scotland who will reflect on how the work undertaken by Data First might be replicated in Scotland.
This seminar is aimed at policymakers, practitioners, analysts and research colleagues who are interested in crime and justice issues and want to learn more about using administrative data for policy-relevant research in the public good.
Full details of the event can be found in the provisional programme.
