One Thousand Days of Degradation: New Labour and Old Compromises at the Turn of the Century

Sim analyzes Britain’s New Labour (N.L.) criminal justice policies, with particular scrutiny of how the government conceptualizes crime and punishment. He concludes by examining N.L.’s human rights commitment. Sim finds N.L.’s “third way” law-and-order strategy to be firmly rooted in the Conservative legacy of authoritarianism, anti-statist strategies, and managerialist discourse.
