This Position Paper has endeavoured to paint a clear picture of the interwoven nature of social exclusion and crime by drawing attention to the social profile of prisoners; the criminal law’s targeting of marginalised groups; the uneven application of the law to different socio-economic groups; the causes of crime; issues of reintegration and poverty following imprisonment and the urgent need to shift the focus of public policy to investment in crime prevention and early intervention instead of wasting its energy and resources on punitive criminal justice policies.
