Penal Reform and Service Provision

The Seminar will consider the issues raised by the third sector's dual role in campaigning and penal reform and in service provision.

The seminar fits into a wider programme of six seminars funded by the Economic and Social Research Council which aim to bring together leading academics from a range of disciplines, policy makers, criminal justice providers and representatives from third sector organisations (TSOs) in order to critically explore third sector (voluntary, charitable and non-governmental organisations) involvement in the criminal justice system and consider how it might develop over time.
