  • Kerry Clamp

    Dr Clamp's main research area is in restorative justice - an approach to dealing with crime and conflict that brings those most affected into contact. She has recently completed a national survey on police use of restorative justice which outlines how police officers are trained, how they practice restorative justice and how other specialist services are commissioned to deal with more complex cases throughout the criminal justice process. She is also the Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Restorative Justice Council, the national voice and standards setting agency for restorative justice in England and Wales.
