An award to celebrate excellence and impact of research into penal issues
The Howard League for Penal Reform is celebrating the work of academics and researchers whose work offers genuine new insights into the penal system through the introduction of its Research Medal.
We are committed to supporting new thinking and radical researchers who want to make an impact and change penal policy and practice through high quality research. The Research Medal celebrates high quality research that has succeeded, or can demonstrate that it has the potential, to have an impact on non-academic audiences.
The Research Medal is awarded in memory of Lord Parmoor.
