    As part of the Academic Insight series for HMI of Probation, the paper offer a brief overview of Procedural Justice and its role in strengthening public support for the criminal justice system. Focusing on those in close contact with the system as defendants, offenders, crime victims, or witnesses, it describes how procedural justice is applied in different criminal justice settings and reviews the research evidence for its positive effects on compliance with the law and cooperation with criminal justice agencies. Then, using the youth justice system as a case study, it draws on research funded by the Nuffield Foundation and conducted during 2018-2019 by ICPR at Birkbeck and the Centre for Justice Innovation on problem-solving approaches in the youth court. It describes how procedural justice and problem-solving are interconnected and explores how they are being developed, with a focus on the role of youth offending services in supporting and promoting these approaches in the youth court.
