Ideas on the 3rd Floor: Punishment - Should we lock ‘em up?

The general announcement is:

Tuesday 29 November 2011, 5.30pm - 7pm
IPPR North offices, 3rd Floor
20 Collingwood Street
Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1JF

Thom Brooks will explore questions such as: how do we decide what should be crimes? How do we decide when someone is responsible for a crime? What should we do with criminals? Rick Muir will respond to Thom's argument and will explore how ‘justice reinvestment’ could more effectively rehabilitate offenders.

This event is part of the Ideas on the 3rd Floor programme, which is a series of in-house events on a wide range of topics within politics, culture and society designed to bring the freshest ideas and the most interesting thinkers to Newcastle for intelligent debate of some of today’s most pressing social challenges.
