Description

Uncomfortable Conversations Series: Overrepresentation and Disproportionality of BAME Young Men in the Criminal Justice System

"The disproportionately high numbers of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) offenders and the poor outcomes they face in the Criminal Justice System (CJS) have been drawn to the attention of successive governments, voluntary and public sector agencies for decades. The situation has frequently been the subject of independent scrutiny and attempted institutional reform. Yet despite this, poor results persist; arguably, we have now reached a critical point. There is now a greater disproportionality in the number of black people in prisons in the UK than in the United States." (The Young Review 2014, Executive Summary).

This one-day course addresses the issues around disproportionality and explores the challenges, strategies and approaches to working with BAME young people within the CJS.


Who is it for?

The course targeted to Youth Justice professionals, however is open to all those with an interest in crime prevention and reduction and the rehabilitation of offenders, including education staff and youth workers.
