Crime and punishment in a market society

How just is the criminal justice system?

In her speech Vivien Stern will argue that

'Criminal punishment has penetrated deeply into social policy and is being used disproportionately against the poor. With the entry of the free market into the delivery of punishment the possibilities for expanding the control of people seen as risky is limitless. This will not produce the safer society we all seek.'
