  Annotation: The theme of the National Institute of Justice's 1998 conference on criminal justice research and evaluation was the importance of viewing crime and justice from a collaborative perspective.
Abstract: In choosing the conference theme, the objective was to explore the complexity of a collaborative approach, as reflected in the way researchers and practitioners related to each other at the community level. The plenary session addressed challenges and opportunities associated with collaborative partnerships. Conference participants examined the increasing receptivity of practitioners to designing and implementing knowledge-based interventions; the need to understand community structures, interactions, and dynamics in designing and implementing collaborative projects; critical attributes of effective partnerships; demands placed on researchers and practitioners involved in collaborative projects; and ways of overcoming challenges. Conference participants also emphasized the importance of balancing different perspectives, varied expectations, time commitments, trust, and common objectives. Notes
