Justice and Home Affairs
The Justice and Home Affairs Policy Commission examines Labour thinking on issues such as policing, the justice system, immigration and asylum, and political and constitutional reform.
The Commission meets regularly to consider evidence and submissions, identify challenges, and develop Labour’s policy in these areas.
The members of the Policy Commission are drawn from the National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. Its membership reflects all parts of our movement, including Labour party members, affiliated organisations and elected politicians.
The Commission will investigate strategies for 'protecting our communities and turning lives around'. This includes the evolving nature of threats to community safety, from anti-social behaviour to changing crime patterns and the growth of extremism. We will also look at how prison and probation services must reform to better reduce reoffending, and what role community sentencing can play in the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders.
We will be publishing a consultation paper in 2018.
