CSJ Paper on Marriage
"Why is the Government anti-Marriage?"

The Centre for Justice published a paper on 28 December 2009 putting our policy recommendations on marriage within context. The paper describes how we have come to believe that this country's peculiarly poor record of social dislocation is in huge part caused by family breakdown. Recommendations concerning marriage and strengthening family life are within the context of evidence-based policy recommendations aimed at reversing social breakdown and helping the lives of the most vulnerable, as published in Breakthrough Britain.

Lord Woolf, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales (2000-2005), praised the work of the CSJ Criminal Justice Working Groups after attending our Criminal Justice briefing in November 2009.

"Having been one of the audience at the recent meeting held by the Centre for Social Justice, I would like to record how impressed I was by the initiatives that are being taken by the Centre in support of criminal justice. There are so many things happening which are distressing in the criminal field. The efforts of the Centre to promote best practice based on careful research was inspiring. I hope the Centre's work reaches the widest audience."


Philippa Stroud, CSJ Executive Director, was interviewed for the documentary entitled Melanie Phillips in search of the British Work Ethic, which looked at life on benefits and low paid work. The two part programme was broadcast in January 2010.



Christian Guy, CSJ Senior Policy Specialist, chaired a roundtable discussion on education and training in prisons on 2 December 2009 in Parliament. The event was attended by senior parliamentarians, offender management professionals and leaders from the voluntary sector. 



The CSJ are putting details together of their fringe programme for the 2010 Party Conference season with an array of fringe meetings and roundtables looking at Britain's toughest social policy problems.
