Reducing Crime: how do we know what really works?

This event took place outside of the secure zone.

At the 2014 Liberal Democrat Party Conference, we hosted this fringe event with NatCen Social Research, the British Psychological Society and Sense about Science.

It explored how research evidence is used in crime policy and what are the barriers to using clear, high-quality evidence. It also questioned how we can use trials and experimental research on crime reduction to learn what works - and what does not.

There was no need to register and refreshments were provided.
