Irish Penal Reform Trust

Shifting Focus: From Criminal Justice to Social Justice

Informed by a shared commitment to combating social injustice, IPRT, Barnardos and IAYPIC (now EPIC) came together to raise awareness of the interconnections between child policy, penal policy and wider social policy.

The paper makes a strong case to shift focus and resources to investing in communities and preventing the marginalisation associated with offending behaviour.
