Abstract
This briefing paper draws on five PhD projects conducted in Scotland between 2011 and 2021, all of which explored how imprisonment impacts on families, mothers or children. PhD projects are unique in allowing researchers the luxury of time to form relationships with participants, arguably producing richer data than would otherwise be possible. As PhD theses and academic publications can be lengthy and inaccessible, this Briefing Paper draws together key learning from this substantial Scottish evidence base in a more accessible format.
