Convict Criminology is the result of a long journey that has had as its primary mission the introduction of an emerging type of criminological writing, research, and analysis. This panel will present and discuss their latest research initiatives, including new research on reducing prison populations, solitary confinement, super max penitentiaries, desistance from crime, ex convicts "making it," documenting success stories, and convict reentry issues. We invite the audience to participate in the provocative discussion led by ex convict academics.
