Abstract

[The development of policy, especially criminal justice policy, is often fraught and divisive with a plethora of short-term solutions to long-term problems. This chapter is going to discuss the challenges of policymaking in the arena of sexual offending, suggesting that currently we “think fast not slow”, but that in reality we want to “think, fast and slow” so that we can build good evidence-based policy that reduces reoffending, protects communities, and reduces risk. The challenge, the chapter will argue, is that by creating intuitive, short time, and often reactive policy we do not get the opportunity to think through and develop the policies that we need.]
