Designing an Innovation Strategy for the Justice Sector in Ireland

The Department of Justice in Ireland includes under its remit a sector which comprises a myriad of agencies, bodies, services, and third party organisations, all of whom strive to deliver a safe, fair, and inclusive Ireland. 

In 2021, we worked with partners Context Studio to assist the Department of Justice in the co-creation of an Innovation Strategy for the Justice Sector in Ireland. We worked with the Innovation Team at Dept of Justice to engage stakeholders from across the sector. We developed a shared understanding of what innovation means, innovation enablers, and the challenges faced, including co-designing and facilitating six online stakeholder workshops. We crafted a draft strategy for the sector, by the sector, which was co-created by the people who will use it in the coming years.
