Marguerite Schinkel

Marguerite’s research focuses on criminal justice. In her PhD and post-doc research she explored how prison sentences are given meaning by those who undergo them. More recently, she has explored the impact of Covid-19 and lockdown on penal experiences in Scotland. Besides the lived experience of punishment, she is interested in how people escape cycles of harm, the places and spaces that help/hinder this, and alternatives to criminal justice.

She is interested in how lived experience can influence law and policymaking and the use of legal processes. She undertakes academic research with civil society organisations to critique law and policy from a user’s perspective and has recently been investigating the application of Fineman’s Vulnerability Theory in these contexts.
