.@DrHannahGraham up now! Talking about electronic monitoring in criminal justice. Says we need to think about what aims this tech serves: to rehabilitate? To monitor? To reduce prison populations? #JusticeEdinburgh
.@DrHannahGraham: Technology access - If used well - can improve harm reduction programmes for those in the judicial system. It can be used well or punitively, & that’s the question we face. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@DrHannahGraham: Prisons need to change. We need a national conversation about so called ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ criminal justice. Reject increasing the severity of punishment: what makes us feel better doesn’t make us safer. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@DrHannahGraham: as a criminologist & a victim of a serious crime I have given this a great deal of thought. Deterrence theory based on severity of punishment does not work. Longer prison sentences cannot be justified based on deterrence. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@DrHannahGraham: All justice spokespeople in Scotland’s Parliament are men. Only a quarter of Scotland’s judiciary are women. Only a handful of the judiciary are under 40. Only a quarter of prison staff are women. We need to be brave & courageous. #JusticeEdinburgh
