As part of our work to develop a network of researchers working in administrative justice, today we launch an updated version of the UKAJI Current Research Register, alongside a number of new profiles of projects listed in the register.
An organic resource
The register is an organic resource, and we are well aware that work is going on that we haven’t included. We update the register twice a year (in October and May), and we intend to add to it and build it up as a resource. The research projects are all works in progress – as is the register.
The register lists current research in administrative justice, and you can search by researcher name, funder, or topic using keywords. Click the plus button next to the entry that you want more information about. Where possible, we have included a brief explanation of what the research is about and a link to further information. You can access it here:
Within the listings are several projects identified as having a UKAJI profile, with more information about the research provided by the researcher. For those, you can click on the link ‘UKAJI profile’ to see the full profile. You can also see the complete list of researcher profiles at the Profiles of current research page.
The ‘live’ projects that we profile cover a range of themes and areas and illustrate the diversity of this field, including:
LATEST! October 2016 profiles:
- Construction clients and mediation: a follow-up study of attitudes and experiences, Andrew Agapiou and Bryan Clark
- Other Children, Other Voices: Education and Exclusion and the Duty to Progressively Realise Children’s Rights, Seamus Byrne
- A Comparative Examination of the Participatory Nature of Special Educational Needs Tribunals in Northern Ireland and Wales, Orla Drummond
- Fair and Consistent? Are asylum appeal hearings the same wherever they are heard?, Nick Gill and Andrew Burridge
- An Investigation Into The Nature and Role of Non-settled ADR in the English Civil Justice system, Ahmed Masood
You can see the list of profiles published in previous versions of the register here.
Ways you can help
We are seeking help from researchers and others with an interest in administrative justice. You can help by:
- Telling us about your research
We encourage any of you who are involved in current research to get in touch so we can include your project in the next version. If you would like your research included, please complete Current research profile template and email it, along with a photo of yourself, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or simply get in touch and let us know what you’re working on!
- Giving us feedback
Also, this initiative is a conversation, not an end product. We welcome your feedback and suggestions as to how to improve the format and presentation of the register and profiles to help make them useful to other researchers, to funders, and to practitioners and policy makers. Please use the comment section on this blog post, or send any comments to email@example.com.
