We’ll be there blogging live, updating you throughout with everything said and who said it.

The discussion is organised by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies. The workshop and discussion hopes to answer the following questions:

        – How can we make

prisons obsolete

        – What are the available policy and practice

solutions to harm that do not rely on punishment and exclusion

        – What are the challenges and opportunities for

building coalitions and support for advancing this work
