The chapters in the book demonstrate the sheer scale of marketisation and privatisation that has occurred in criminal justice in the UK. There is evidence similar marketisation has occurred in other states around the world. As this book demonstrates, there are a whole array of other means by which the market has been used to shape the delivery of experiences of criminal justice. The chapters in this book expose a range of modes of governance and accountability that are at play and demonstrate the ways in which marketisation has impacted on criminal justice at macro-, meso- and micro-levels. Importantly, they have shown what the impact of this has been on the broader field, the individuals working within those fields and the service users that are subjected to systems of power delivered in newly formed markets. In this concluding chapter we attempt to draw some of the themes that run across the earlier chapters together and consider what the future might hold for criminal justice and marketisation.
