This collection of essays focused on solutions to the over-representation of ethnic minorities in the criminal justice system; it is argued that now is the time for a new approach to tackle race inequalities in the criminal justice system.

The overall theme of the collection is that whilst tackling institutional and individual racism should still be a priority, it is crucial that wider inequalities in employment, pay, education and housing are tackled in order to reduce the numbers of Black and minority ethnic people (BME) in the criminal justice system.

Due to the impact deprivation and inequality has on participation in crime, the collection of essays argued that over-representation in the criminal justice system will only be defeated once the aforementioned issues are tackled.
