While regulatory institutions and strategies have been the subject of increasing academic attention, there has been limited application of regulatory theories to criminal justice scholarship.

This collection of essays from a range of outstanding international scholars adopts a critical, inter-disciplinary approach, providing an innovative application of regulatory theory to the practice of criminal justice and offering suggestions for further research. Part I explores the aims and values of criminal justice and other regulatory networks and the synergies and tensions between these fields; Part II examines criminal justice as a regulatory force to control 'deviant' and anti-social behaviour and Part III examines the regulation and oversight of criminal justice through the operation of prison inspectorates and explores notions of responsive justice.

  • Applies regulatory theory to the practice of criminal justice in order to offer a new academic perspective in a developing field
  • Offers cross-disciplinary, international perspectives which will appeal to scholars from a range of disciplines as well as the non-specialist
  • Offers useful tools for examining recent government policy and suggestions for future research, thereby informing present and future critiques of recent policies which have blurred the boundaries of criminal justice and regulation
