Event: PET Academic Symposium 2015

9 Jun 2015

PET's second Annual Academic Symposium will take place on the 9th June at the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge. 

This year we will build on the success of last year’s symposium and will be bringing together academics from a range of disciplines to invigorate discussion surrounding education in prison. We aim to further explore opportunities to embed this network and promote collaborative working between academia, governmental departments and the criminal justice system.

 The key themes for the event will be:

-    Creating rehabilitative cultures through learning

-    Bringing together universities and prisoner education 

-    Technological innovation and breaking the digital divide

Discussions will be led by Prof Alison Liebling and international academics such as Assoc Prof Helen Farley from Australia and Prof Baz Dreisinger from America. It is set to be an invigorating and interactive event with people from all over the world discussing their research.
