The ICA Economist Debate

Crime requires punishment

Police and prison numbers rise, crime is falling - yet faith in the criminal justice system is declining. Is the desire for retribution, unspoken and unsatisfied, a shameful echo of the past, or a vital way of restoring public confidence?

Speakers: Mark Leech, Publisher and Managing Editor of The Prisons Handbook, released from prison in 1995, founder and former Chief Executive of the National Ex-offenders Charity, UNLOCK; Marian Fitzgerald, visiting research professor at the LSE's Mannheim Centre, who formerly worked in the Research and Statistics Directorate of the Home Office; Rob Allen, Director of 'Rethinking Crime and Punishment' at the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and a member of Youth Justice Board; and Peter Hitchens, columnist at The Mail on Sunday and author of The Abolition of Liberty. In the chair: Edward Lucas, Britain correspondent at The Economist.
