Dr Rachel Condry, Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford
Forging public awareness and developing policy responses to adolescent to parent violence
Dr Condry created the first and only (to date) large-scale study of adolescent to parent violence (APV) in the UK, and provided systematic evidence of the size and scale of the problem. Guidance created for the Home Office based on the research has now also been used by statutory and voluntary agencies across to the UK, leading to changes in local practice.
Excellence in Impact Award Winners
Professor Abigail Adams and Professor Jeremias Prassl, Department of Economics and Faculty of Law, University of Oxford
Access to Justice and the Economics of the Rule of Law
Research by Prof. Adams and Prof. Prassl was instrumental in the overturning of employment tribunal fees at the Supreme Court. Adams, an economist, and Prassl, a lawyer, had explored whether adverse economic barriers could constitute a barrier to justice in UK and EU law. They collaborated directly with the senior barristers on the case, which was won in July 2017.
Professor Lucie Cluver & the Young Carers team, Department of Social Policy & Intervention, University of Oxford
Making Impact Matter for Vulnerable Adolescents Across Sub-Saharan Africa
Professor Cluver and team have used their research to demonstrate that a combination of economics and social support (‘Cash plus Care’) in Sub-Saharan Africa has a strong impact on reducing adolescent HIV risk behaviours. Partners including UNICEF, USAID, the World Bank and governments are now supporting the roll-out of this programme, benefitting 2 million adolescent girls.

Integrated healthcare information system for medical and care quality improvement
Dr Li’s research on information sharing and integration has led to a collaboration with senior hospital managers in China to develop and implement and integrated data platform. Since the first pilots, the platform has become a digital health company and is listed on the Chinese stock exchange. The platform has reduced medical errors, waiting and enquiry times, and duration of stay for inpatients.
Early Career Impact Champion
Dr Shona Minson, Centre for Crimonology, University of Oxford
Safeguarding Children when Sentencing Mothers
Dr Minson has brought significant attention to the need to consider children whose mothers are imprisoned: her research has shown how little they are considered at sentencing. She has produced films and briefing papers which have been embedded across the justice system and had led to changes in sentencing processes, as well as outcomes in individual cases.
