Title: Women and the Criminal Justice System – past, present and future
Date: 15 April 2016
Venue: Royal Statistical Society, London,
Blurb: Join us in London for our one-day conference to discuss women as victims and as perpetrators of crime.
Throughout the day, academic researchers and professional practitioners will describe and analyse the journeys women take as they engage with the criminal justice system – from the point of being at risk of becoming a victim or offender, through experiences of trial, diversion and being inside and outside of prison – using a range of statistical and qualitative evidence.
This conference brings together the latest academic and policy analysis to key issues concerning women and the criminal justice system, aiming to inform practice, stimulate academic-professional partnerships and provide an opportunity for networking.
This conference is organised by the Centre for Criminology and the School of Law at the University of Essex with the Royal Statistical Society, co-sponsored by ESRC and Palgrave MacMillan.
Tickets are free and all are welcome. Lunch will be provided with a wine reception to close proceedings.
