Sentencing Policy and Social Justice

Ralph Henham

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • Uses examples from international, comparative and domestic contexts to advance the moral and ethical case for challenging the existing theories of sentencing, arguing that the promotion of social justice should become a key objective of sentencing policy.
  • Comes at a time when the need to reflect public opinion in sentencing is receiving significant attention, including broadening the scope of lay participation through jury or 'stakeholder' sentencing.
  • Proposes a new theoretical focus with practical suggestions for sentencing reform.
