Centre to assess General Election manifesto claims

Thursday, 27 April, 2017

With the party election manifestos due out in mid-May, we will be producing a special UK Justice Policy Review briefing on the main parties' crime and justice plans and commitments.

The forthcoming manifesto assessment is the first in a regular series of briefings that will supplement the annual UK Justice Policy Review reports that the Centre has been producing for several years.

Our Director, Richard Garside, said today:

During the course of this General Election, we will offer evidenced and impartial assessments of the main parties' plans for crime and justice.

Through our UK Justice Policy Review annual reports, we have been scrutinising criminal justice developments across the UK since 2010.

Our new UK Justice Policy Review briefing series will supplement the annual reports, offering prompt, evidenced and impartial scrutiny of justice policy developments.

UK Justice Policy Review 6, which assesses criminal justice policy developments between the 2015 General Election and the Brexit referendum, will be published in June, to coincide with our 'Criminal Justice since Brexit' conference.
