Current ‘just deserts’ models in criminal justice draw part of their support from a loss of faith in consequentialist aims of sentencing such as rehabilitation. Recent evidence concerning the effectiveness of rehabilitative efforts suggests a need to reconsider this aspect of ‘just deserts’ arguments. A more socially contextualised understanding of ‘justice’ is needed to make sense of the place of rehabilitative aims, but this also requires a more explicit linkage than currently exists between the goals of criminal justice and those of wider social policy.
