Abstract

This chapter discusses how developments in criminal justice have affected suspects’ rights; different types of victims’ ‘rights’; whether victims have (legally) enforceable rights; and enhancing victims’ rights without eroding defendants’ rights. It concludes with an overview of the impact of neoliberalism, the extent to which the system incorporates the ‘core values’ it ostensibly subscribes to, and how to make criminal justice more freedom-enhancing.
