In the 2015 Ellis MacDougall Lecture, Dr. Jonathan Jackson, Professor of Research Methodology in the London School of Economics Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, presented findings from a cross-national study of procedural justice theory in diverse social, legal, and political contexts. A key focus throughout the presentation was a discussion of the meaning, measurement, and motivating force of trust and legitimacy in the context of the police and law.
