The Prison Crisis – what are the alternatives to incarceration?
London

With Richard Garside. As the prison population in the UK, which is now the highest in Western Europe, continues to escalate, we must ask ourselves whether our criminal justice system is fit for purpose. Why are our prisons overflowing? Is imprisonment meant to be rehabilitative or punitive, and what measures would help to prevent criminalisation and recriminalisation? If other international approaches to social problems based on criminalisation and punishment are proving successful, what can we learn from those countries whose policies and practices are producing more satisfactory results? Richard Garside is the Director of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, where he set up the Crime and Society Foundation, and is the lead author of the Centre’s keynote annual publication: UK Justice Policy Review. He is also Senior Visiting Research Fellow at The Open University. Richard is in favour of the long-term abolition of prisons and the development of practices that are socially transformative, rather than punitive, and he writes and broadcasts regularly on issues of crime, criminal justice and social harm.
6.45pm (doors open 6.30).

London Pacifism and Nonviolence Discussion Group.
London

You don’t have to be a committed pacifist or nonviolentist to join in – meetings are open to anyone interested.
Events usually revolve around a particular topic chosen by participants at an earlier meeting. Anyone taking part can suggest topics for future meetings.

10 October: NONVIOLENCE AND SPORT.
Is sport inherently violent? Can sporting allegiance be a part of positive community building, or does it encourage sectarianism? Can sport be used to promote peace?

14 November we’ll revisit NONVIOLENT ACTIVISM – CONSCIENCE, CONVENIENCE AND COMPROMISE.

And in DECEMBER (on 12 December) we’ll have a seasonally festive topic to discuss. See website for details

In Housmans Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, Kings cross, London N1
