Prison Abolition in the UK

Major conference on prison abolition in May 2019

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies and the Harm & Evidence Research Collaborative at The Open University, in partnership with Professor Joe Sim of Liverpool John Moores University, will be holding a major conference on prison abolition in the UK in 2019.

The conference will be on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 May, at The Open University campus in Milton Keynes.

The prison system in the UK is in ongoing, systemic crisis. While politicians pay lip service to the need to reduce prisoner numbers, further growth and expansion are far more likely.
