D315_3: Does prison work?


Unit image

The material presented here focuses on a key question for criminologists, criminal justice policy-makers and politicians: ‘Does prison work?’ The material is an audio file, originally 28 minutes in length, and examines the issues around this apparently simple criminological question. It was recorded in 1995.

This material is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Crime, order and social control (D315) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
