Gordon Bazemore is currently Professor and Chair in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and Director of the Community Justice Institute, at Florida Atlantic University. His research has focused on juvenile justice and youth policy, restorative justice, crime victims, corrections, and community policing. Dr. Bazemore is the author of 65 peer-reviewed articles, 34 book chapters, 25 monographs and technical reports, and numerous other publications. He is first author of three books on juvenile justice reform: Juvenile Justice Reform and Restorative Justice: Building Theory and Policy from Practice (with Mara Schiff; Willan Publishing); Restorative Juvenile Justice: Repairing the Harm of Youth Crime (with Lode Walgrave; Criminal Justice Press) and Restorative and Community Justice: Cultivating Common Ground for Victims, Communities and Offenders (with Mara Schiff) (Anderson Publishing). He was recipient of Florida Atlantic University’s Researcher of the Year Award in both 1995 and 1999.

Dr. Bazemore has 30 years experience in juvenile justice practice, research and training/technical assistance, and he has directed research and action projects funded by the National Institute of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and other public and private agencies. He served as a consultant, researcher and trainer to the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services’ (HRS) initiative on juvenile pre-adjudicatory detention reform (as prescribed in the FL Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 1990). As part of this initiative, Dr. Bazemore conducted research, prepared publications, and made presentations on the impact of implementation of detention screening criteria and reforms on culture and climate in Broward and Dade county detention facilities. He is a former member and co-chair of the Florida Juvenile Justice Standards and Training Commission, and a founding member of the Florida Supreme Court work group on Community and Restorative Justice (initiated by Justice Barbara Pariente).

Since 1993, Dr. Bazemore has been the Director of the Balanced and Restorative Justice Project funded by the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. He has advised and provided training and technical assistance to more than 30 states and several federal agencies on juvenile justice, offender reentry, restorative justice, and victim services reform. He has been a keynote speaker at more than 40 state juvenile and criminal justice conferences in the past decade, and has spoken on these topics at national and international conferences in Northern Ireland, Germany, Bogota, Australia (Melbourne, Canberra, Queensland), Canada, Belgium, and Brazil. In 1999, as part of the centennial celebration of the founding of the first juvenile court in the United States, Dr. Bazemore prepared and presented a monograph (one of three addressing the past, present, and future of the court) entitled “The Juvenile Court and the Future Response to Youth Crime: A Vision for Community Juvenile Justice,” at the National Counsel of Juvenile & Family Court Judges, National Symposium on the 100th Anniversary of the Juvenile Court.
