Incarceration: Are Prisons a Suitable Punishment?

University of Leeds

Overview

The imprisonment of criminals has existed for nearly as long as civilization. But is prison actually the most ethical or even practical solution to the problem of crime?

Richard Peake is a lecturer in Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of Leeds. In this course, Peake presents an overview of the UK criminal justice system, examining the ethics of incarceration, the prison facilities themselves, and alternative approaches to crime. While the course focuses primarily on the criminal justice system in England and Wales, many of the issues raised apply to conversations taking place across the globe.
