Corporatization of The Criminal Justice System conference will include panel presentations and keynote speakers from across the nation and world consisting of scholars, attorneys, and advocates working on the pressing issue of the role of private prisons in mass incarceration and immigration detention. The conference seeks to address a broad range of questions, including how the profit-motive of private prison corporations influences the length and severity of sentences and availability of parole, how private prisons and mass incarceration disproportionately impact communities of color, and how private prisons contribute to social inequality and oppression. This event will examine the corporatization of the criminal justice system writ large, examining prisons, parole, immigration detention, bail, and probation.
