Our prisons’ dilemma

As reoffending rates are so incredibly high in the UK, there is surely something terribly wrong with prison rehabilitation. Without proper rehabilitation, this vicious cycle – that we all pay for – continues. This poses a fundamental question about how we, as a society, view the role of prisons and the people who run them. On this show, we ask if the profit motive combined with using prison as a deterrent skews rehabilitation. Ross Ashcroft is joined by former prison monitor and criminologist Faith Spear and Dr. David Scott, senior lecturer in criminology at the Open University.
