Elections 2016

In advance of the 2011 general election, IPRT called on all parties to commit to a broad programme of evidence-led proposals, leading towards a more effective and a more humane penal system.

In advance of the 2016 general election, IPRT once again put forward our 10 priorities for a fairer and more effective penal system. We analysed party manifestos as they were made public. We continue to track policy debates around crime and punishment, benchmarking these against policies and innovations demonstrated to be effective.

All of IPRT's policy proposals are backed up by solid evidence and research, presented across a series of Position Papers and Briefings and Submissions published on this website. For more details, please contact Fíona on 087-1812990 or communications@iprt.ie
