About this event

Professor David Santos Fonseca, Federal University of South Bahia, Brazil

“Between penal minimalism and punitive authoritarianism: Brazilian imprisonment policies and the dynamics of subnational variation”.


David S Fonseca is a senior lecturer at the Universidade Federal do Sul da Bahia (UFSB) in Brazil, where he coordinates the Observation Center for the Criminal Justice System. He holds a PhD in Sociology from New York University (NYU) and his research focuses on developments in punishment and crime control in Brazil and Latin America.

This event is part of The Social Analysis of Penality Across Boundaries – Workshop Series which has been jointly organised by the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) and the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL) in Argentina.

This series aims to bring together a wide range of current work from around the world on aspects of penal politics, policies, practices and institutions.

We hope to continue to expand the scope for comparative analysis of penal questions, and to stimulate cross-regional collaboration and exchange between scholars north and south.

We hope thereby to build a mutually supportive community of researchers despite and because of their strikingly diverse situations.

The workshop will take place via Zoom. The link will be sent to attendees via Eventbrite the day before and a few hours ahead of the workshop starting. Please check your junk folder if you haven't received it yet.

Organiser The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research

Organiser of Professor David Santos Fonseca Workshop

The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research is a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Strathclyde that aims to produce excellent research and develop excellent researchers so as to better the development of policy, practice and public debate about crime and justice. Though based in Scotland and determined to analyse and address crime and justice in Scotland, our work is international both in its influences and in its influence. We work for, with and through fellow academics, policymakers, practitioners and others involved with justice all over the world, believing that Scottish criminology and Scottish criminal justice has much to learn from and much to teach others.
