This chapter discusses the nature of risk, how it is applied to criminal justice and how this fits with ideas of rehabilitation. The authors discuss the organisational dynamics of risk, drawing on complexity and evolutionary theory to analyse developments in organisational theory. A focus for discussion on the understanding of evolutionary processes is also included, in order to explore developments in studying risk and risk management. Other methodologies include a case study to highlight the arguments in the chapter.

Keywords:   Risk, Rehabilitation, Criminal, Justice, Organisational Theory, Analyse
