Respect and Criminal Justice offers the first sustained examination of 'respect' in criminal justice in England and Wales, where the value is elusive but of persisting significance. The book takes the form of a critique of the 'respect deficit' in policing and imprisonment. It is especially concerned with the ways in which both institutions are merely constrained and not characterised by respect. In the course of the critique, it emerges that they appeal to the word 'respect' but rarely and only superficially address the prior question of what it is to respect and be respected. Despite academic interest in the democratic design of these institutions in recent decades, the book concludes that respect is more akin to a slogan than a foundational value of criminal justice practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gabrielle Watson argues that the real value and potential of respect as a critical and regulative ideal in criminal justice has been diminished by the tendency to construct it as a side-constraint on (dominant) instrumental concerns such as order, crime prevention, or control. This is an imaginative, sensitive, and finely-textured interpretation of the role that respect might play in a critical analysis of criminal justice. * Professor Nicola Lacey FBA CBE, London School of Economics *
Gabrielle Watson offers a refreshingly original and bold interdisciplinary analysis of respect in criminal justice settings. The novel paradigm she develops invites us to think creatively and critically about the intrinsic value of respect. She shows us how we might (re)design institutions based on this paradigm. This is work of outstanding quality; it will change the way researchers and policymakers view respect in criminal justice contexts. * Dr Justice Tankebe, University of Cambridge *
