Final Report Prepared by:
Dr. Amy Farrell, Associate Director, Institute on Race and Justice
Dean Jack McDevitt, Director, Institute on Race and Justice
Lisa Bailey, Assistant Director of Community Outreach, Institute on Race and Justice
Carsten Andresen, Research Associate, Center for Criminal Justice Policy Research
Erica Pierce, Research Associate, Center for Criminal Justice Policy Research
The Institute on Race and Justice at Northeastern University brings together academics from the College of Criminal Justice, School of Law, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and African American Studies Program to examine questions on race and justice facing urban communities. Our primary goal is to conduct meaningful research in race and justice and provide leadership on issues of racial injustice. The mission of the Institute is founded on the premise that academic institutions can provide rigorous and objective analysis that can be used by members of the community and policy makers to make policy changes that advance the cause of social justice. This research model attempts to enhance scientific inquiries with the input and experiences of community stakeholders who struggle with issues of racial injustice. Combining traditional empirical questions with a community-based problem-solving model of research provides a national model for action-based research in the field of race and justice. For more information about the Institute or the findings in the Massachusetts Racial and Gender Profiling study please visit our website at www.irj.neu.edu.
