Criminal Justice Reform
What happens to people when they’re released from prison? Does deterrence work? And how do we ensure the criminal justice system doesn’t just entrench social inequality?
These kinds of questions don’t get enough attention. Our criminal laws are there to protect us, but too often all they strive for is punishment, and everyone loses.
We advocate for an evidence-based criminal justice system that respects human rights, prioritises rehabilitation over punishment wherever possible and ultimately leads to safer communities.
