No Longer ‘Little Studied’: Challenging Criminological Narratives about Financial Punishment

Published: December 2022

This paper argues for the need to unsettle longstanding narratives about financial punishment through clearer
articulation of its social and emotional toll on those subjected to it. Only with a strong evidence base of this kind can we begin to critically evaluate the consequences of financial punishment and their place in criminological theory and practice, as well as in the current economic context.
