(Re)imagining Punishment and Justice

Malloch M & Munro W (2016) (Re)imagining Punishment and Justice, Scottish Justice Matters, 4 (1), pp. 2-3.

First paragraph: THIS SPECIAL EDITION of Scottish Justice Matters is focused upon Reimagining Punishment and Justice and we hope the ideas it contains will play an important part in the development of new ways of thinking about punishment and justice by exposing contradictions in the gap between the desire for a better future and the constructed ‘naturalness’ of existing conditions. For us, the discussions and debates that emerged around the Scottish Referendum in 2014 epitomised many of these contradictions, notably the relationship between a desire for social change and a reluctance to move beyond the ‘already known’. This has been a characteristic of many aspects of social life, as well as a feature of Scottish criminal justice.
