Relations between government researchers in the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice and academics, often undertaking contract research on behalf of both departments, are at a low ebb. This state of affairs is not in the interest of either party or good for the debate on crime and criminal justice. The article suggests ways in which the rifts might be healed including more openness and transparency on behalf of government and the adoption of and adherence to principles to ensure the reputation of government sponsored research.
