From 23rd March 2020 to 17th July 2020, the Centre for Justice Innovation collated information on justice system responses to COVID-19 in eight different common law jurisdictions. In this new briefing, we take stock of the general trends we observed and reflect on what the main challenges will be across these jurisdictions in the coming months.
This briefing presents the findings of the Centre's Coronavirus and justice tracker, which has been observing how criminal courts (both youth and adult) and public family cases have responded to the crisis in eight common law jurisdictions across the world.
This report details the findings of a research project which was jointly undertaken by the Centre for Justice Innovation (CJI) and the Institute for Crime and Justice Policy Research (ICPR), Birkbeck, which examined current practice in the youth court, and how the court was meeting the needs of vulnerable young people.
This briefing highlights how different jurisdictions around the world are responding to cases of domestic abuse during the Coronavirus crisis, which came out of research conducted for the Centre's Coronavirus and justice tracker. It draws out common themes and potential lessons to be learnt from other countries.
This toolkit is for practitioners who are involved in, or are considering creating, a pre-court diversion scheme for adults in contact with the criminal justice system, and offers evidence-led practical advice, based on lessons learnt from existing schemes.
