The experiences of criminal justice in Wales, 23 October 2019

Roxanna Dehaghani (Cardiff University)

This paper focuses on a project where we talk to suspects, defendants, defence solicitors, barristers, and police officers to understand their experiences of the criminal justice system. The project will compare the perceptions of these different groups, and explore how they understand the way that other parties experience the criminal process. Each group is asked questions looking at how they understand and experience the criminal process. We want to know about their relations with other groups in the criminal process and how they think they experience the criminal justice system. The research is based in south Wales with a focus on the areas in and around Cardiff. We ultimately hope to improve understanding of the criminal process as well as provide a case study of how criminal justice is functioning in an area that may become a distinct legal jurisdiction in the future.
