UK Justice Policy Review

Conference examines justice developments across the UK

Since 2010, our UK Justice Policy Review (UKJPR) programme has been assessing criminal justice developments across the UK.

Earlier this week we published our latest UKJPR report, covering developments between the 2015 General Election and the June 2016 Brexit referendum. Yesterday our latest UKJPR annual conference – Criminal justice since Brexit – heard from 15 speakers from across the UK.

Do the manifesto claims stack up?

Do more police officers cut crime? Are tough community sentences a realistic alternative to prison? These are some of the questions considered in the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies' latest report.

Assessing the 2017 General Election Manifestos, the first in a new series of UK Justice Policy Review Focus briefings, scrutinises some of the main manifesto pledges by the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats.

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.
