Event description

Description

We are writing to invite you to a seminar being held as part of the Data Science Institute Distinguished Seminar Series at Lancaster University. This is being hosted by the DSI, the Centre for Child and Family Justice Research, and the Nuffield Foundation Family Justice Observatory Data Partnership.

The Value of Administrative Data for the Family Justice System

Speakers: Professor Anna Vignoles and Judge Carol Atkinson

When: Tuesday 18th June, 4-6pm, and followed by a wine reception

Where: Seminar Room A15, Charles Carter Building, Lancaster University


Details: Administrative data has huge, and as yet largely untapped, potential for social science research in the U.K.. However, it is not without its methodological, practical and ethical challenges. Anna Vignoles, Cambridge University, will discuss the future of the administrative data research infrastructure in The U.K. and in particular the new ESRC Administrative Data Research UK centre (ADRUK). She will illustrate the scope for administrative data to become far more central to social science research in the U.K. going forward but also argue that it has greatest potential when combined with other rich data, such as the U.K. longitudinal and cohort studies. Anna will be followed by Judge Carol Atkinson, who will talk about the use of data in the judicial system from a real-world perspective, focussing on the opportunities and challenges to the use of evidence in practice.

About the speakers:
