This chapter draws together some of the broad themes, theories and ideas covered in the preceding contributions. It notes that despite the initial apparent welcome for Corston and the length of time since the report, that far less of substance has changed than might have been hoped for–the challenges posed by Corston still have a considerable distance to travel. The chapter considers why this might be and concludes that the ideological reasons behind the continued high use of custody the focus on retribution, the promotion of ‘one criminal justice system’ and the provisions within Transforming Rehabilitation lead to the conclusion that much still needs to be done.
