Congratulations to two of our 2013 honours cohort, Amy White and Harriette Curtis, who have jointly won the Monash & Neighbourhood Justice Centre Criminology Research Report Award. As part of their coursework unit, Amy and Harriette (along with the other criminology students) prepared a 5,000 word report on an issue of significant importance to the Neighbourhood Justice Centre.
The decision was made by the Director of the Centre, Kerry Walker, who could not separate the two outstanding reports. On 12 November 2013, Amy and Harriette were presented with a certificate and book recognising their achievements.
In commenting on Amy’s project, Kerry said:
“I have really enjoyed your insights into the importance of protections for victims and witnesses to ensure that justice is achieved. This is a thoughtful paper – I think the NJC could achieve the innovation by better joining up the information we already have and by streamlining the focus of staff and volunteers. Please do check in with me in 6 months time so I can tell you how the NJC responded”.
In commenting on Harriette’s project, Kerry said:
“A great essay – thoughtful and useful. Would like to know how you would practically attempt to influence the justice system to respond. You have really explored the complexities of societal literacy differentials and I would encourage you to continue to keep access and equity in your thinking”.
