Justice Policy Centers & Initiatives

Centers

  • RAND Institute for Civil Justice

    The RAND Institute for Civil Justice (ICJ), a part of the Justice Policy program, conducts research on all aspects of civil justice, from trends in litigation and jury verdicts to punitive damages, compensation systems, and alternative dispute resolution. Directly or indirectly, civil justice issues have an impact on us all.

  • RAND Center for Catastrophic Risk Management and Compensation

    The RAND Center for Catastrophic Risk Management and Compensation (CCRMC) seeks to identify and promote laws, programs, and institutions that reduce the adverse social and economic effects of catastrophes.

  • Center for Corporate Ethics and Governance

    The RAND Center for Corporate Ethics and Governance, or CCEG, is committed to improving public understanding of corporate ethics, law, and governance, and to identifying specific ways that businesses can operate ethically, legally, and profitably at the same time.

  • Center on Quality Policing

    The RAND Center on Quality Policing provides research and analysis on contemporary police practice and policy. The Center's work helps law enforcement agencies across the U.S. make better operational decisions and consistently perform at their best.

Initiatives

  • Assessing What Works in Correctional Education

    Correctional education helps prisoners better transition to communities upon release. RAND's research in this area has influenced policy at a state and federal level.

  • Priority Criminal Justice Needs Initiative

    The RAND Corporation, partnering with the Police Executive Research Forum, RTI International, and the University of Denver, is conducting research to assess and prioritize needs across the criminal justice community and to utilize innovation to solve problems and work smarter.

Past Research Centers

The Center for Terrorism Risk Management Policy was closed and its site archived on November 16, 2009, because the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act was renewed. The Center provided research on economic security in the face of the terrorism threat, including terrorism risk insurance, terrorism liability, compensation, security, and terrorism risk management.
