Can Prison Work?

Can Prison Work?

The Glasgow Skeptics invited Vice-Convener of HLS, Prof Richard Sparks, to give a talk, Can Prison Work? Professor Sparks, a Professor of Criminology at the University of Edinburgh, gives his talk a Scottish focus - asking what is prison for? Can hope for more? Does it matter what the stated aims of imprisonment are? Does it matter who runs the prisons? Are all prisons basically alike?
