Session 309: TC29 -> Roundtable: International Prison Project (Sponsored by Division on Corrections and Sentencing)
Time: 2:00PM to 3:30 PM on Thursday, November 14
Place: Grand Ballroom
Session Chair: Tomer Einat, University of Maryland at College Park
The International Prison Project is designed as a cooperative program linking an international group of researchers* who are interested in examining prisons and prison adjustment of inmates. Given that there have been few empirical and comprehensive studies regarding this issue from an international perspective (i.e. outside the United States), Prof. Mackenzie and Dr. Einat wish to initiate a discussion that will serve to form the basis for international studies and collaborations. Researchers will meet at the ASC roundtable to begin to discuss the development of the hypotheses and the data collection instruments for such a study.
