BAME Young People and the Criminal Justice System One day seminar on the challenges of improving criminal justice outcomes for BAME young people aged 16-24 9:30 am - 4:00 pm 22 July 2014 Black, Asian and minority ethnic young people have long been over-represented within the criminal justice system. With austerity and Transforming Rehabilitation dominating the current debate there is a danger that inequalities within the system have been hidden or forgotten. However recent developments have put BAME young people back on the agenda: The Home Secretary's consultation and HMIC inspection of police stop and search practices which highlighted that those from the BAME community are seven times more likely to be stopped and searched than a white person Baroness Young's independent review into improving outcomes for young black male and Muslim offenders The YJB's aim to reduce the numbers of BAME young people entering both the youth justice system and custody The chair for the day is Angela Sarkiss, YJB Board member, and speakers include: Baroness Young; Neena Somata, Stopwatch; Patrick Williams, Manchester Metropolitan University; Bilal Dunn, The Noor Initiative Annetta Bennett This event, jointly hosted by the Criminal Justice Alliance and BTEG will provide an opportunity for practitioners and policy makers to hear challenging presentations, stimulate discussion and to debate the issues and network. This is a free event with places limited to one per organisation. For further information about location and to RSVP please contact Stephen Moffatt here.
