September 1, 2017 Research and Evidence The Lammy Review: An independent review into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic individuals in the Criminal Justice System Research ReportsBy The Lammy Review Download The focus of the review is on BAME people but acknowledges the complexity of this terms including references to other minoritised groups. This review has two distinctive features, the first of which is its breadth. The terms of reference span adults and children, women and men. It covers the role of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the courts system, the prisons and young offender institutions, the Parole Board, the Probation Service and Youth Offending Teams (YOTS). Secondly, whilst independent of the government, the review has had access to resources, data and information held by the criminal justice system (CJS) itself. In the past, too much of this information has not been made available to outsiders for scrutiny and analysis. As a result, this review has generated an analysis that breaks new ground on race and criminal justice in this country.
