Ministry of Justice's Inquiry into the Care and Management of Transgender Offenders (2016)
Professor Alex Sharpe, Dr Fabienne Emmerich and Ms Robyn Emerton of the School of Law have drafted written submissions for the purposes of the Ministry of Justice's Inquiry into the Care and Management of Transgender Offenders (2016). The submission focuses on issues of allocation within the prison estate, specifically whether, and on what basis, prisoners are allocated to male or female prisons, and on issues of segregation and isolation, particularly within the male estate. The issue of allocation recently hit the headlines with the suicides of two transgender women who were allocated to male prisons.
