Social isolation risk assessment methodologies

The paper advances the argument that the development of a risk assessment methodology that meets the criteria for delivering pre-trial justice both in procedural and substantive terms requires that attention is given to the consequences that the imposition of restrictive measures may have on the accused. To this end, following a brief overview of the key underpinnings of existing pre-trial decision-making tools, the paper looks into methodologies for assessing the risk of social isolation and/or exclusion, and marginalisation.
