Event description

Description

2016-17 saw the worst prison riots in decades. Across the country the prisons estate exploded. The flames of the riots cast a light on the so-called prison crisis. Injustice investigates the crisis, and delves into the world of prisons, crime and the judicial system.

Ex-prisoners, activists, criminologists and even prison governors tell us who the prisoners are and why they are inside. We hear what happens inside, and outside. Injustice asks what prisons are supposed to do and what they actually do. In Injustice it’s not that prisons are in crisis, prisons are the crisis.


The University of Central Lancashire is delighted to be holding a screening of Injustice, and have invited the film’s director to join a panel of speakers, who will discuss the film and the role that prison plays in society.

The event will be hosted by Dr Laura Kelly, Criminology lecturer at UCLan in conjunction with Lancashire Law School and UCLan’s Criminal Justice Partnership.
