Individuals exposed to the criminal justice system experience an elevated risk of dying from violence, this risk is concentrated in females and marginalised sub-groups. 

Surprisingly little is known about violence-related deaths in this population. This thesis aims to 1) describe the nature and predictors of violence-related deaths in this population, and 2) examine how these differ by sex and marginalised ethnic sub-groups.
