Mass incarceration and overcriminalization in the United States are subject to critique by some on both the right and the left today. Many critics increasingly talk of prison abolition. At the same time, the international human rights movement continues to rely upon criminal punishment as its primary enforcement tool for many violations, even as it criticizes harsh prison conditions, the use of the death penalty, and lack of due process in criminal proceedings.

Our relationship with justice is complex. Justice and the systems for delivering (criminal) justice are often criticised but rarely is there a credible, achievable challenge to the status quo proposed: most want to tinker around the edges. We are witnessing a global climate of mistrust and challenge to the establishment, political elites as well as justice leadership. The time is right to consider the way we do justice and what we want the justice system to achieve.
