Description - Legitimacy and Compliance in Criminal Justice by Adam Crawford

This book aims to explore a number of connected themes relating to compliance, legitimacy and trust in different areas of criminal justice and socio-legal regulation. It draws together leading criminologists, psychologists and socio-legal scholars in an inter-disciplinary dialogue and debate examining diverse areas of penal policies, policing, community penalties and business/tax regulation. Contributors consider conceptual and normative, as well as descriptive and empirical questions about the role of legitimacy in fostering compliance and the study of compliance more generally. Contributors examine the implications of legitimacy for criminal justice and advance theories of and conceptual questions about compliance, what it means and how it might be evaluated. Important conceptual insights provided by notions of 'responsive regulation' and 'procedural justice' are be assessed. Chapters reflect on the development of new regulatory tools that engage in innovative ways with the subjects of regulation particularly where they enlist subjects' self-regulatory capacities through forms of 'regulated' self-regulation.
The nature and extent of compliance in a number of crime control and regulatory settings will be explored, with many contributors drawing on original empirical research findings to support their analysis. Legitimacy and Compliance in Criminal Justice will be of interest to students and researchers from a range of disciplines including criminology, socio-legal studies, psychology, regulation and tax and corporate law.
