March 2012

The Centre held its spring seminar at Dartington Hall in March 2012. In the first session Manuel Eisner, Professor of Criminology at Cambridge University, spoke about his research to explore what causes large-scale variation in homicide rates across time and across societies. In the second, Naomi Eisenstadt, a senior research fellow at the University of Oxford and a Trustee of the Warren House Group, then discussed the successful scaling of the UK SureStart programme. The seminar ended with Michael Little discussing the Unit’s contribution to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s work on scaling interventions to achieve maximum impact.
