In 2015 Justice Analytical Services published ‘What Works to Reduce Reoffending: A Review of the Evidence’. https://www.gov.scot/Publications/2015/05/2480. The review has been cited widely and helped to shape community justice policy priorities.
The successful intern will bring the review up-to-date by seamlessly incorporating any new and robust evidence (published between 2015 and 2018) that relates directly to ‘what works’ to reduce reoffending.
Any findings from recent UK evidence reviews or studies should be prioritised but they should also include any relevant new research published in other jurisdictions. There should be a particular focus on high priority and emerging policy areas including restorative justice and what interventions reduce reoffending for domestic abuse perpetrators and sex offenders.
You will be working alongside, and receive support from social researchers in the Justice Analytical Unit. They will be undertaking more focussed reviews on key topic areas which could be fed into the evidence review as appropriate.

The Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are delighted to announce the launch of joint four-year PhD studentships, for entry in academic year 2019/20. We have 12 studentships available covering a stipend, tuition fees at Home/EU rates and travel funds.
One of the areas selected for interest is Criminology (One Health and Future Cities are the other topics). Each student will spend up to 12 months carrying out a minimum of 2 taster projects (one at each university) before selecting their main PhD project. Students will participate in a residential symposium during their first year.
The Criminology theme will examine, theorise and evaluate a range of interconnected contemporary policy challenges within the sphere of crime and justice. A list of those projects can be viewed here – see link. https://www.gla.ac.uk/research/ourresearchenvironment/prs/uofguofedinphdstudentships/criminology/#/
Applications are invited from outstanding students from any location. International students should note that the difference between Home/EU fees and international fees will be covered by the student.
