Holloway Commons, Squamscott Room

This talk reviews some of Western’s research on the scope and consequences of mass incarceration, discusses some new work from the Boston Reentry Study (a longitudinal survey of released prisoners), and addresses the possibility of criminal justice reform. Western argues that political reform will depend in part on effectively describing the human challenges, and choices of those involved in the criminal justice system.
