After Strangeways Webinar Series - February 2021

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies is presenting a series of Webinars In February looking at the protest, its aftermath and the failure to reform the system. Thirty years on, the dysfunctions and problems of the prison system that gave rise to the Strangeways protest are as pressing as ever. Indeed some would argue they are worse. Many prisons across Britain appear locked in a terminal spiral of decline and decay.

Five webinars over five days in February will discuss:

  • the background to the Strangeways protest
  • the ongoing problems
  • the possible futures of prison
