Royal Scots Club
This conference focuses on Scotland's approach to criminal justice and discusses both 'what works' and which public service, cultural, health and environmental factors need to be recognised and targeted. It looks at whether it is possible to deliver an inclusive strategy which sees justice as part of a much wider policy challenge across the economy, health, education and broader public services as well as public engagement.

Thu 25th Apr 2019
This conference will examine proposals for the new Consumer Scotland agency. It will look at how it could fit into the existing advisory and regulatory framework of support for consumers and examine how it will use its powers and influence to mandate and advocate for change in marketplaces. It will look at what the focus of its in-depth investigation-led activities may be on issues which are either particular to Scotland or which manifest beyond Scotland but have a unique Scottish dimension.
