What could fair justice mean for children and young people?

The Monument Fellowship Annual Question 2021


Every year since 2017 the organisations in the Monument Fellowship - Khulisa, Clinks, Centre for Justice Innovation, Lemos&Crane, Koestler Arts, National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance. Diagrama UK, Restorative Solutions - have published an annual question about criminal justice, inviting responses from a large variety of contributors of diverse experience, knowledge and opinions, including practitioners, academics, people with lived experience of the criminal justice system, artists, writers, poets, film makers and many others. The responses to this year's questions will be co-ordinated, edited and published by Diagrama.

Responses are invited to the Monument Trust Fellowship's annual question for 2021:

What could fair justice mean for children and young people?

Co-ordinated by Diagrama UK on behalf of the Monument Fellowship, contributions will be edited and collected into a book to be published early in 2022. The book is aimed at anyone who works with, or supports, children and young people in the justice system, and anyone who makes or influences policy and practice in this area. 

We want the book to tell readers about the impact that their work has on children and young people, inform them about emerging practice and new ideas, and inspire positive and lasting change.

The book is sponsored by the Monument Fellowship whose members work together to make a sustained, cumulative and transformative change to the journey of individuals through our justice system.

What will the book include? Themes and content

 Typically, the book will be made up of chapters of around 2,000-2,5000 words addressing any aspect of the themes set out below. We also welcome shorter pieces, and art, poetry, or other material which expresses what fair justice could mean for children and young people.  And if you have an idea for a contribution that doesn’t fit the themes below, then do still get in touch with us to discuss that.

1.      Understanding Children, Young People and the Justice System - What does everyone who wants to achieve fair justice for children and young people need to know in order to bring about change? 

2.      What does fair justice look and feel like? –  Good practice, evidence, ideas, experience that can inform our view of what fair justice for children and young people should look like.

3.      Making change happen – how do we bring about positive and lasting change to deliver fair justice for children and young people?

Who do we want contributions from?

We would like to hear from anyone with interest, experience or knowledge of the system, for example

  1. Professionals, volunteers and families working to support children and young people or working as part of the wider youth justice system
  2. Researchers and academics who can bring the audience up to date with evidence;
  3. Policy makers and influencers and anyone else working to help drive positive change in the system. 
  4. Crucially, we want to give a voice to children, young people and others with lived experience within the system or as victims of crime about what fair justice means to them.
  5. We want to look internationally for good practice and to challenge deep rooted preconceptions of how things 'are' here in the UK.
