Justice papers

Part of our mission at Centre is to inform debate and to produce new ideas. This is where we publish papers to focus on different areas of policy and to explore the different points of view on a certain topic. We also produce briefing papers to offer both the background to a subject and a policy proposal.

Working together:

This plan sets out what a centrist and moderate United Kingdom would look like. It would be a country that takes the best ideas from both the left and the right and looks at what policies work in other countries. Therefore, we back both strong public services and boosting businesses by creating a free market economy.

Keeping local justice: Why we need to keep local justice areas. (Briefing paper):

This paper looks at the abolition of Local Justice Areas (LJA’s). LJA’s help to decide which cases Magistrates’ Courts deal with. It discusses how the current LJA’s work, the arguments put forwards in favour of the change by the government and finally some issues with the reform.
