New Justice Matters toolkit - building social justice alternatives

On Thursday 17 March 2016, Will McMahon (Deputy Director) and Rebecca Roberts (Senior Policy Associate) will be attending the Howard League conference at the University of Oxford to talk about the Centre's Justice Matters initiative. They will be presenting a prototype workshop toolkit which aims to encourage participants to think through short- and long-term solutions to a range of social harms and problems that do not rely on criminal justice interventions. 

Discussing alternatives to criminal justice

As part of the Justice Matters project we asked people to tell us what they would build in place of criminal justice to deal with the social harms that affect society.  This is a challenging subject. It is challenging because it is about rethinking the configuration of policy and practice – for instance in housing, education, health, social security and employment – so that many current criminal justice responses are not required at all.
