    Abstract

    Scopic (social contexts of pathways into crime) is a five year ESRC funded
    programme of research which aims to achieve a better understanding of how young
    people become involved in crime. A key consideration in a research programme of
    this type is how best to generate policy implications from academic research. This
    report sets out a proposal as to how this might be achieved. It begins with a brief
    description of scopic; we then set out a framework for deriving policy implications
    which takes into account the validity of the research, and the practicality, feasibility
    and ethics of proposed policy options. Consideration is then given to how policy
    implications might be made concrete. The report concludes with a case study in
    which the model is applied to one of the early published research papers from scopic
    and we comment on the strengths and weaknesses of this approach.
