My research focuses on studying criminal justice policy and practice to identify and highlight the wider structural factors that inform the experiences of people who are subject to criminal justice intervention in prison and the community.
The research projects I lead explore how to integrate social justice principles in criminal justice policy and practice. So far, I have led projects that promote the implementation of practice principles that ameliorate the structural marginalisation that often intersects with vulnerability to criminal justice intervention.
I have written texts and journal articles that have explored issues such as the construction of compliance in penal settings, and the limited efficacy of probation enforcement policies compared with policies based on social justice principles.
I am currently completing two edited texts that will explore policy and practice principles that promote social inclusion and full citizenship for all.
