Current policy development

The CSJ continues to develop evidence based policy to change people's lives and tackle the root causes of poverty.

Housing Programme

Housing will be one of the most important political issues at the General Election in 2015, but it is also an issue of social justice.

Community Cohesion

Recent figures indicate that both relative poverty and economic inequality have risen over the past 13 years in the UK. It is also apparent that deprivation has increased even more strikingly among Britain’s minority communities.

Criminal Justice Programme

Social Justice and Criminal Justice go hand in hand. Not only does crime disproportionately affect poorer communities, but those committing it are far more likely to suffer from the causes of social breakdown. The Programme will advance just, evidence-based and cost-effective reforms designed to prevent crime, protect society and turnaround the lives of those involved in criminal activity.
