Physical and Legal Security and the Criminal Justice System: A Review of Inequalities

Walby, S., Armstrong, J. and Strid, S. (2010). Physical and Legal Security and the Criminal Justice System: A Review of Inequalities. Manchester: Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Abstract

This research report is intended to contribute to two aspects of the work of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. First, to the production of the Triennial Review in 2010 of progress towards equality, human rights and good relations. Second, to assess the challenges facing Criminal Justice System agencies in meeting the new public sector duty to promote equality, due to come into force in April 2011. This duty extends the existing duties to promote equality on race/ethnicity, gender and disability to other protected equality groups (by religion/belief, age, sexual orientation, gender identity) as part of the Equality Act 2010. The Public Sector Equality Duty is a potential tool and key driver for identifying discrimination and inequality of outcomes and taking action. The Public Sector Equality Duty provides an impetus for organisations to actually gather data and take action on inequalities.
