Michael Rempel is research director at the Center for Court Innovation. He is currently principal investigator on a national study of prosecutor-led pretrial diversion programs; a multi-method study of “what works” in school safety; a risk-informed analysis of decision-making gaps at multiple stages of criminal case processing in New York City; and a national study of youth involvement in the sex trade. He is also co-principal investigator on NIJ’s Evaluation of Second Chance Act Adult Reentry Courts. In addition, he is involved in a number of projects that draw upon a combination of evidence-based practice literatures and original research to develop strategies for reducing the use of jail in New York City and nationwide. In the recent past, he was the principal investigator on a multisite study of the U.S. Attorney General’s Defending Childhood Demonstration Program, and he has published extensively on research related to evidence-based strategies with criminal offenders; drug treatment courts; and offender interventions in cases of intimate partner violence. Recent publications also concern research on specialized domestic violence courts; the commercial sexual exploitation of children; community courts; procedural justice; and developmentally-appropriate responses to the criminal behavior of 16 and 17 year-olds in New York. He frequently writes and presents on the use of evidence-based strategies with criminal offenders and often advises on research-based technical assistance initiatives. His work has appeared in a variety of research journals, including the Journal of Experimental Criminology, Journal of Drug Issues, Justice Quarterly, Criminology and Public Policy, the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, and Violence Against Women; as well as practitioner-oriented journals such as the Justice System Journal, Judicature, Drug Court Review, Domestic Violence Report, and Criminal Justice Magazine. He is co-editor of Documenting Results: Research on Problem-Solving Justice (2007). Previously, he published articles on contemporary social theory and the political sociology of advanced industrial societies and co-edited Citizen Politics in Post-Industrial Societies (1997).
