Last week's webinar video on short prison sentence reform is out now. 

We were joined by Kenny MacAskill MP, Professor Sarah Armstrong (via video presentation), Professor Cyrus Tata, and Professor Nicola Padfield to discuss the options, pitfalls and opportunities of reforming short prison sentences in England and Wales. 

The conversation included:

  • Learning from the experience of the Scottish presumption against short prison sentences

  • Critical issues for taking forward this agenda 
  • A panel discussion
