UK Justice Policy Review

National media cover our research on tagging contracts

You might have noticed that our work has been getting some media coverage recently. An analysis of government spending data by our Research and Policy Assistant, Matt Ford, published on 25 June, was picked up by a number of news outlets.

The analysis found that G4S and Serco are still being paid millions for providing electronic tagging equipment to the Ministry of Justice, despite being under criminal investigation for overcharging when they ran the contracts.

G4S and Serco continue to dominate criminal justice market

Controversial security companies G4S and Serco received more than seven pounds in every ten spent by the government on prison and probation-related contracts in the four years to April 2014, according to new research by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies published today. The research, published in the fourth edition of UK Justice Policy Review, is based on analysis of Ministry of Justice transparency data.

The devolution era in Northern Ireland

David Ford discusses the innovations and advances since 2010

The focus on criminal justice since 2010, coincides with the creation of the Department of Justice in Northern Ireland in April of that year. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to outline our understanding of the devolution era, to make the case for our different justice systems, and for the sharing of innovations. In short, I want to make the case for a greater understanding of the benefits which devolved justice has to offer. First, three broader contextual points.
