Professor Paul Mazerolle: ‘Beyond the Common-Sense Revolution in Crime and Justice Policy Making’

In his address at the launch of the Ryan Foundation in February 2014, Professor Mazerolle said that most people who have closely watched policy developments in the crime and justice area over time would attest to the ongoing tension between ideology and evidence in the formation of policy and practice.  Like the economy, crime is an area that generates strong personal feelings about what appropriate responses should look like.  The pull toward ideological approaches to policy development is so strong and so personal that governments of all persuasions need to embrace research evidence to assist in informing their directions in policy development and implementation in the crime and justice area.
