IN-CJ is for people engaged in international development work in Criminal Justice. It aims to use new technologies to build new networks. It is open source. Ideas and connections flow from people meeting and exchanging – from working together – from thinking together. This network began during the 2020 lockdown because an international round table was cancelled. Innovation was the result and the work and papers were launched via the web rather than into a lecture hall or a journal. IN-CJ believes in starting conversations about Criminal Justice and International Development. The network begins the discussion. Circles of interest develop. The potential for unexpected connections, surprising opportunities – non-linear starbursts of activity – lie ahead. Just because that is the nature of the internet. IN-CJ knows that the need for creative solutions to justice issues is greater than ever. The coming years will make international development work ever harder (budgets, travel, nationalism, the medium to long-term implications of the Covid-19 pandemic) so this network will provide a platform for different professionals and agencies and nationalities to make the connections to make the magic that will make a difference. And generate thousands of ideas in the process.
