The next session of the Byse Workshop, Abolitionist Approaches to Criminal Justice: Perspectives and Debates, will take place on Thursday, March 28, at 3:45-5:15 PM, in Wasserstein Hall (WCC), Room 4059. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please refer to this link for the workshop’s syllabus and reading materials.
In this session, we will discuss the problem-solving court and criminal law minimalism movements. These movements agree with abolitionists that the criminal justice system is unjust and discriminatory, and that mass incarceration must be tackled much more vigorously than it is today. However, they hold that protecting public safety requires the work of a well-functioning criminal justice system, including law enforcement and prisons. Should abolitionists consider these movements adversaries or allies?
This non-credit workshop is open to all members of the Harvard community, without any required registration. Attending all sessions is encouraged but not mandatory. No prior knowledge is required.
