Overview

Following the deaths of six female inmates, the UK Home Office commissioned the 2007 Corston Report, a parliamentary investigation into the state of vulnerable women in the British criminal justice system. This insightful book explores developments since the report’s publication, revealing that while some of its recommendations were accepted by government, actual policy has restricted the scale and scope of change. Investigating a broad range of services for women offenders, contributors consider the question of whether women should be treated differently in the criminal justice system and offer possible future policy directions drawn from the Coalition Government’s 2013 Transforming Rehabilitation agenda. This timely analysis will be an important resource for policy makers, service providers, and practitioners alike.
