Civil Rights and Restorative Justice project at Northeastern University School of Law

December 6, 2009

….The two components of CRRJ’s program are research and remediation.
Scholars from a range of disciplines- including law, criminal justice,
history, sociology, and political science – are engaged in CRRJ’s
empirical research, the main program of which is compiling and
analyzing information about anti-civil rights harms.
The remediation program assesses and supports policy measures to
redress the harms, including prosecution, truth and reconciliation
proceedings, state pardons, and apologies by state and private entities
who bear responsibility for the harms.

 CRRJ collaborates with scholars across the country, activists in the civil rights community, and non-academic researchers.

CRRJ’s agenda is two-fold: (1)research on law
enforcement and government repression during the civil rights era, and
(2)support for policy initiatives that address the legacy of law
enforcement failures and repression.
