Report: Lammy Review - Treatment of BAME individuals in the Criminal Justice System

Written by The Editorial Team

The Lammy Review, chaired by David Lammy MP, is an independent review of the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals in the Criminal Justice System (CJS).

Over the last 18 months the Lammy Review has conducted extensive research across each aspect of the criminal justice system, and considered the views of over 300 organisations and interested parties who responded to the Call for Evidence.

The Review’s findings are underpinned by the latest available evidence; and supported by further research and analysis that was been specially commissioned. The Report makes 35 recommendations to help improve on fundamental principles of trust, fairness and responsibility which are key to addressing racial disparity in the criminal justice system.
