Specialists in Criminal Justice Research and Evaluation
The M&A research group was established in 1991. The group is comprised of five key consultants and draws on others, as required, from within and outside the University sector. This network allows us to establish a research team specifically geared to the needs of a particular project. Members of the group have also developed instruments to measure attitudes to offending (CRIME-PICS II) and impulsivity and aggression (CRIAQ).
