Respect and Criminal Justice

Gabrielle Watson

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • The first study of the role and value of 'respect' in criminal justice
  • Presents a rare joint discussion of policing and imprisonment practices in England and Wales
  • Offers a challenging corrective to current scholarship which, at best, gestures towards the significance of respect for those we seek to police and punish
  • Marks a refreshing departure from established patterns of working by reconciling abstract theory and concrete discussion of criminal justice reform
  • Sets up an interdisciplinary dialogue between the humanities and social sciences, enabling more than the incremental development of a single discipline and ensuring a wide audience
