Criminal justice since Brexit: conference programme

We are delighted to announce the programme and (most of) the speakers for our forthcoming Criminal justice since Brexit conference on Wednesday, 28 June.

The conference opens with a panel discussion, chaired by the BBC's Danny Shaw. Representatives from across the four UK nations and regions will discuss what has been going on in crime and justice across the UK. Panellists will include Allison Morris from The Irish News and Chris Marshall from The Scotsman.

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:

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.
