Recover, Renew, Transform: Delivering Scotland’s Post-COVID Justice System

COVID-19 has disrupted every corner of society. The justice system is no exception, with the Scottish Parliament’s Justice Committee estimating it could take up to 10 years to clear the backlog of cases. 

The pandemic has also exacerbated existing pressures, as society ponders how to balance the interests of victims, witnesses and their families against managing the prison population through more community justice. 

So how can Scotland’s justice system overcome the impact of COVID-19 on the justice system, while also instigating longer term reform? 

Our event will discuss this and draw on the thinking of the Scottish Government’s recently established Recover, Renew, Transform programme, consider the potential role of technological solutions and examine the latest thinking on victims’ rights, alternatives to prison and the role of restorative justice.
