The Violence and Justice Research Lab (VJRL) supports and promotes research in the areas of violence and victimization, its impact and consequences, and the role of the justice system in addressing these issues.

The VJRL has a particular focus on underserved and understudied populations, who are often particularly vulnerable to experiencing violence. The VJRL aims to improve our understanding and response to crime victims and identify policies and practices that create more responsive systems of justice to promote recovery, healing and community restoration.
