Thursday 23rd May 2013, 18:00 - 19:45
Cantor Lecture Theatre
City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University
The Community Justice Portal 10th Annual Public Lecture will be given by Rob Allen.
With the Coalition Government promising both a new generation of prisons and a radical overhaul of community supervision, the lecture will examine how new systems of funding and organisation are likely to impact on the management of offenders. While plans to use savings from reduced costs to expand the supervision of short term prisoners could be seen as a form of justice reinvestment, Rob will argue that an opportunity is being missed for a more fundamental recalibration of punishment which would see a much more significant proportion of the prison budget used more productively.
Rob's lecture will follow the No Offence 'Payment by Results' conference, which is being hosted by the Hallam Centre for Community Justice, Sheffield Hallam University on 23rd May 2013.
