Centering Rehabilitation: Reevaluating Prisons and Punishment
Monday, January 24, 2022, 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM
WBEZ’s Race, Class and Communities reporter Natalie Moore recently traveled to Finland to learn more about the country’s open prisons and the philosophy that guides its unique approach to punishment. Her reporting highlighted the stark contrasts between the Nordic and American criminal justice systems.
Join WBEZ and the University of Chicago’s Center for Effective Government for an event exploring different models of prisoner rehabilitation and the potential for local reform. Natalie will share her experience inside Finland’s open prisons and provide an inside look into her reporting. The event will also feature a panel discussion about the future of the American criminal justice system.
Virtual attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts on justice and imprisonment during the discussion.
Natalie Moore's reporting from Finland was made possible by a grant from the Richard C. Longworth Media Fellowship Program, funded by the Clinton Family Foundation and supported by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Pulitzer Center.
