NACRJ endorses, encourages and supports both well-designed academic research and thorough, unbiased investigative journalism that explores applications of community and restorative justice that contribute to the development of safe, just and equitable communities. At its biennial conference, NACRJ periodically recognizes accomplishments by journalists and academic researchers with its Research/Journalism Award. Going forward, the award will be named in memory of Dr. Gordon Bazemore.
This year’s recipient is Thalia González, a Professor of Law at the University of California, Hastings College of Law where she holds a Harry & Lillian Hastings Research Chair. She is also a Senior Scholar in the Center on Poverty and Inequality at Georgetown University Law Center where she leads national research and policy advocacy on restorative justice, and is the author of more than 40 academic publications and currently an editor of the North American Volume of the International Encyclopedia of Restorative Justice (forthcoming 2023).
