The rate of incarceration of women is increasing worldwide, while the special needs of women prisoners have received scant attention. Panelists participating in this discussion reflect on the early findings of an important study of the causes and consequences of women’s imprisonment in Jamaica, drawing parallels with the experiences of incarcerated women worldwide. The results and recommendations of the study will guide government officials and international organizations in devising policies to better address the needs of incarcerated women and women implicated in the drug trade.
Event will be held in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor.
