Professor Rachel Barkow - Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration
Join us to hear Professor Rachel Barkow (HLS '96) discuss her new book, Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration.
America’s criminal justice system finds itself at a unique moment in the political arena, making the need for data - and evidence-based analysis more important than ever. Based on years of research, and addressing specific policies that have failed to end the cycle of recidivism, Prisoners of Politics argues that specific reforms guided by evidence, rather than politics and emotions, will both reduce crime and mass incarceration. Professor Barkow will discuss her book and engage in a Q&A with the audience.
Rachel Barkow is Professor of Law at the New York University School of Law. She is also faculty director of the Center on the Administration of Criminal Law. Her scholarship focuses on administrative and criminal law, and on applying the lessons and theory of administrative law to the administration of criminal justice.
