Third Sector Involvement in Criminal Justice
This chapter examines the rise of marketisation in criminal justice and the increasingly important role of third sector organisations in these markets. The authors give a brief history of criminal justice marketisation and the roles in it for various state and non-state entities. They then focus specifically on third sector agencies, defined as non-state, non-private sector bodies such as charities, not-for-profit groups, and voluntary organisations and individuals. This is followed by a survey of the types and extent of third sector involvement in contemporary criminal justice and key current trends. They examine the advantages and disadvantages of this development, before finishing with a brief discussion of implications for the future of criminal justice.
