UK Justice Policy Review

Centre to assess General Election manifesto claims

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:

Criminal justice since 2015 conference agenda published

We have published the agenda for our forthcoming conference, 'Criminal Justice since 2015: What happened? What next?', which will be held on Wednesday 19 October.

The Northern Ireland Justice Minister, Claire Sugden MLA, and the former Scottish Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill, head a strong line-up of speakers.

Check out the agenda and book your place (if you haven't already done so) here.

Criminal justice faces perfect storm of cuts and overstretch

Criminal justice agencies across the UK face a perfect storm of growing demand and shrinking budgets by the time of the next General Election, according to new analysis by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies.

A rising prison population – set to top 100,000 by 2020 – and inadequate legal aid funding are just two of the threats facing the delivery of justice across the UK, the Centre reports.

UK Justice Policy Review: Volume 5

The fifth in an annual series by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, supported by The Hadley Trust, assessing year-on-year developments in criminal justice and social welfare across the UK.

Combining analysis of the main developments with key data on issues such as spending, staffing and the numbers going through the criminal justice system, UK Justice Policy Review offers an accessible overview of UK-wide developments.

This edition of UKJPR covers the final year of coalition government and the transition to the new Conservative administration.
