at the Sir Raymond Ferrall Lecture Theatre,
University of Tasmania, Newnham
Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Kate Warner, AC, Governor of Tasmania
will present the thirty-first lecture on
Transportation re-visited: lessons for modern penal policy?
John West was one of the most influential opponents of transportation and condemned it as a failed penal policy. However, in terms of re-integration and rehabilitation it was more effective than either physical punishment or imprisonment. What lessons does it have for penal policy today?
This is a free event and everyone is welcome.
