The Columbia Justice Lab is a university research center whose work focuses on crime and criminal justice policy. We conduct path breaking research on incarceration, prisoner reentry, youth development, community safety, and racial justice.

Our vision is a community-centered vision of justice in which healing and resiliency, rather than surveillance and punishment, are used to address social problems rooted in racial and economic inequity.
