[Extract] Sadly, this is the last chapter of the book-a text that we hope you have found to be both informative and inspiring, in equal measure. Each of the chapter contributors has tried their best to provide you with a clear picture of how important criminologically-trained social workers are to the effective and affective running of almost every facet of the criminal justice system. While a range of new ideas and recommendations have been incorporated into this book based on the available literature, it should be noted that criminal justice social work is still in a state of relative flux. While that may be disconcerting for some, this is also an opportunity for many of you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many, whether offenders, victims or their respective families. This text is intended for such matters to be kept at the forefront of criminological as well as social work discourses where both disciplines can come together (as has the first author being a social worker and the second author as a criminologist) to not only engage but also collaborate for the betterment of some of the most marginalised of communities within India.
