A collection of essays examining the linkages and tensions between criminal justice and social justice. Current debate around this issue tends to focus on the fairness or otherwise of criminal justice policies, rather than the positive role that a criminal justice system could have in promoting life chances and tackling social exclusion amongst some of Britain’s most deprived groups. The essays in this collection offer a broad consideration of the extent to which the outcomes of the criminal justice system can be aligned with the Government’s social justice aims, and the ways in which the justice system as a whole can become more responsive to the communities with which it interacts, and more engaged with the national and local agencies which serve them.
