Transformative Health and Justice

This Cluster will address the Grand Challenge of the 'criminocentric' understanding of crime, rehabilitation, and recidivism, by creating a research and policy agenda to address health and justice inequities experienced by individuals impacted by the criminal justice system. We will focus on three themes: (1) Determinants of Health and Justice, (2) Incarceration, (3) (Re)integration.
