The Impact of Migration on Professional Knowledge in the Criminal Justice System

The Impact of Migration on Professional Knowledge in the Criminal Justice System

Main Contacts: Madeleine Arnot, Loraine Gelsthorpe, Caroline Lanskey, Jessica Wheeler

The aim of this internet-based scoping study was to map the landscape of professional knowledge of migration in criminal justice and signal areas which require further inquiry. The final report  identifies key sources and modes of disseminating and regulating professional knowledge on migration-related issues and traces the statistical and discursive story of migration in the criminal justice system in England and Wales.  

Our Aims

The primary aims of the Centre are to:

  • bring together research interests relating to community sanctions (with a European and international as well as a national focus), gender, crime and justice
  • develop the links between criminal justice and social justice
  • give students and colleagues working in these broad areas a clear identity.   

A second, but no less important, objective is to use the Centre as a base from which to apply for research funding. 

Thirdly, the Centre links academic and practitioner related interests - organising a number of workshops with members of the National Probation Service, Community Rehabilitation Companies, voluntary organisations and youth justice agencies. 

The Centre holds occasional seminars and workshops and runs a monthly reading group.
