Directions to the meeting

The goal of the third meeting of the Roundtable on Understanding Crime Trends in the United States is to understand how, and to what extent, the criminal justice system has influenced crime trends over the last two decades. The inquiry is two-fold: (1) Which institutions or practices make a difference (i.e., reduce crime and/or have criminogenic effects)? (2) What is the current or potential impact of those effects on changes over time in aggregate crime rates? The discussions during the meeting are expected to set the stage for one or more published papers on this topic.
