    What if ....? A series of challenging pamphlets 

    Frances Crook, Chief Executive of the Howard League has agreed to be the author of the pamphlet which has a working title of:  'Community magistrates delivering community justice'.

    The premise of the pamphlets is to challenge conventional thinking about various aspects of the penal system.  We want to work with established and well thought of thinkers, academics and practitioners to develop innovative, and perhaps controversial, ideas that can work as a stimulus to new policy initiatives and ultimately achieve change.

    We are keen to test, challenge and improve the ideas to be promulgated in the pamphlet.  To achieve this the author, in this case Frances Crook, will subject her ideas to 'peer review' at this invitee seminar, with the ideas initially subject to scrutiny by a couple of discussants.  We are pleased to announce that the discussants will be John Fassenfelt, Chairman of the Magistrates' Association, Professor Barry Godfrey, University of Keele and Professor Julian Roberts, Oxford University. The event will be chaired by Professor Frances Heidensohn from the LSE

    Information about this event is available at What If...

    Speciality seminar to mark the publication of Children of the Drug War
    by Damon Barrett (Senior Human Rights Analyst at Harm Reduction International)

    About the book: 
    Chidren of the Drug War is a unique collection of original essays that investigates the impacts of the war on drugs on children, young people and their families. With contributions from around the world, providing different perspectives and utilizing a wide range of styles and approaches including ethnographic studies, personal accounts and interviews, the book asks fundamental questions of national and international drug control systems: 

    -  What have been the costs to children and young people of the war on drugs?
    -  Is the protection of children from drugs a solid justification for current policies?
    -  What kinds of public fears and preconceptions exist in relation to drugs and the drug trade?
    -  How can children and young people be placed at the forefront of drug policies?
