Situating Imprisonment for Public Protection

(p.3) 1 Situating Imprisonment for Public Protection
Dangerous Politics

Harry Annison

Oxford University Press

This chapter briefly sets out the interpretive political analysis framework that underpins the empirical research and resulting analysis. It provides an overview of key landmarks in the Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) story-its creation, contestation, amendment, and abolition. It then situates the IPP story within historical and sociological perspectives on the identification and differential punishment of dangerous offenders, and the relevant political context. The resulting research questions to be addressed in subsequent chapters are then set out.

Keywords:   interpretive political analysis, penal politics, risk, populism
