Description

Incarceration in the UK and Scotland. Detention Conditions and the Case for Penal Reform.

Recent riots and hunger strikes in English prisons have shed light on the conditions of detention in the member of the European Union with the largest prison population per capita. The UK system is composed of both a shared regime and special policies depending on devolved governments. This event will be the opportunity to engage in a discussion on the particularities of the Scottish system with high-profile specialists:

  • Tom Halpin: Chief Executive of Sacro (The Scottish Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders)

  • Prof Richard Sparks: Vice Convenor of Howard League Scotland

  • Pete White: Chief Executive of Positive Prisons? Positive Futures
