Event description

Description

Does the criminal justice system punish those causing most harm? Why send children to prison for appointment absence? Why should the police drive drug law reform? How are women prisoners treated in a system primarily serving men? Should parent prisoners be treated differently?

Join the Crime and Social Harm Research Group at the University of Birmingham on November 6th to explore these and other important questions. Cutting edge research will be used to debunk dominant media representations of important crime issues. An opening talk will introduce some key ideas, with smaller sessions then providing the opportunity to hear more on different topics. Likely contributors include Dr Sarah Brooks-Wilson, Dr Anna Kotova, Dr Mark Monaghan and Prof Simon Pemberton with further people to be announced.

We welcome any interested parties, from local strategic and service delivery colleagues, to sixth formers, students and lifelong learners.

This event will run from 1-5pm in the following estimated order:

12.00-13.00 Registration

13.00-14.00 Opening talk with questions
