Project Title: Child First? Examining children’s perspectives of their ‘effective’ collaboration in youth justice decision-making
The position is full-time (FTE1.0) and fixed term from 1 October 2022 – 30 September 2024.
Professor Steve Case (Loughborough University) and Dr Kathy Hampson (Aberystwyth University) are seeking a Research Associate in Criminology to support their Nuffield Foundation funded project to examine children’s perceptions of their capacity for meaningful collaboration in decision-making processes when involved with the Youth Justice System (YJS). Through this project, the research team will generate child-friendly guidance and resources on collaboration practice/expectations, with training made available to youth justice professions on embedding children’s views when co-creating collaborative practice.
The successful candidate will conduct research in the area of youth justice by encouraging the participation of children in the Youth Justice System; working with the lead researchers and justice-experienced children as co-researchers through a ‘Project Reference Group’, to ensure that research questions, design, instruments and analysis are driven by children, privileging child-centric understandings. The Research Associate will be responsible for the development and implementation of a participatory, co-created research project examining the decision-making experiences of children and be based at Loughborough University.
If you are an organised, motivated, and proactive individual, with relevant skills and qualifications, this is a great opportunity to join the project and contribute to its success.
