The Scottish Prisons Commission 10 Years On – A Briefing Paper

Published: July 2018

This briefing paper highlights the key issues that the Commission concerned itself with during its deliberations, quoting from its report and sketching how the landscape in these areas has developed since then. We hope it serves as a useful refresher for stimulating your participation at the conference on 29th June 2018. The presentations, lectures and discussion at this event will inform the development of this paper into a longer report to be published on the SCCJR website in the autumn. We welcome your thoughts and comments to inform this before, during and after the conference, so please keep in touch.
