Women in prison: Corston five years on

Wednesday 29 February
17:00 until 18:00
Chowen lecture theatre, BSMS
Speaker: Nick Hardwick CBE
Part of the series: Issues in Criminal Justice Lecture, Sussex Law School

Nick Hardwick CBE is currently Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Prisons.

He is also Chair of the Housing Ombudsman Service and a trustee of New Horizon Youth Centre.  From 2003 to 2010, he was the first Chair of the Independent Police Complaints Commission and has previously held posts at The National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders (NARCRO), the Department of Environment, the Refugee Council and Centrepoint – a charity and housing association for young homeless people.

This lecture will reflect on developments in the UK since the 2007 Corston Report, a review of women with particular vulnerabilities in the criminal justice system, which outlined “the need for a distinct radically different, visibly-led, strategic, proportionate, holistic, woman-centred, integrated approach”.

The lecture will take place in the Chowen lecture theatre, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, University of Sussex, and will be followed by a drinks reception. The event is free of charge and practitioners can claim one hour’s CPD for attending.
