Our Focus is Data and Community-Engaged, Interdisciplinary, Action-Oriented Research. The primary objective of CREATE Justice is to address key gaps in data and access to justice research in Canada.
CREATE Justice recognizes that research, evaluation, and action towards equal justice requires action-oriented, collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches. CREATE Justice’s research will be oriented towards two general dimensions of access to justice: transforming legal and justice services, and the removal of systemic barriers to justice. Much of existing research focuses on “access” to legal services and institutions, an area that is extremely important. CREATE Justice’s focus on substantive, community-engaged, social justice research is an exciting emerging area and the centre will seek to establish itself as a national and international leader.
CREATE Justice will be home to research, information, and data related to access to justice. CREATE Justice will help make important data more readily available for informed and credible research; centralize information and projects to better streamline efforts and communication between researchers; and encourage research, evaluation, and action at and beyond the University of Saskatchewan.
