Evaluating The Measurement Properties Of Procedural Justice In A Correctional Setting, Howard M. Henderson 2009 Texas Southern University

Evaluating The Measurement Properties Of Procedural Justice In A Correctional Setting, Howard M. Henderson

Howard M Henderson

Research and theory on the effects of fair procedures has gained popularity over the past decade. This is understandable given the inherent appeal of these ideas and the supporting evidence.
