Justice in the Digital Age is a new conference series examining the latest technological developments in the justice sector, and how they are helping to improve support for service users and staff. JitDA is a collaboration between myself and Socrates Software and we are planning a series of international online conferences featuring leading providers, academics and policy makers talking about the cutting edge technologies finally being implemented in justice settings around the world.
The first conference in the series is “Digital Interventions in Criminal Justice Settings” which will examine how digital approaches have increased the impact and reach of intervention programmes. We are grateful for MTC Novo for sponsoring this first event.
