DownloadsJustice does not stop at the prison gate: Justice and fairness in prisons References
Prisons should be places of justice. Unfair and unjust treatment generates resentment, anger and violence, creating a cycle of conflict and harm. Injustice in prisons needs to be addressed in order to break this cycle of violence.
As the most absolute expression of the criminal justice system, prisons should meet the very highest standards of justice. This is the central message in Justice does not stop at the prison gate, the first briefing to be published as part of the Howard League’s programme on justice and fairness in prisons.
The Howard League’s programme on justice and fairness in prisons seeks to create a blueprint to establish what a just prison would look like, eliminate everyday unfairness in prison, and implement fair and restorative approaches.
