Podcasts on Crime Control and Prevention
The VERA Institute has been focusing heavily on the current state of mass incarceration in the US and its relationship with continued criminal and violent behavior. They've put together a pretty impressive speaker series with some of the leading researchers in criminology and sociology. Some of these sessions are available in podcast. I posted some of them below.
Devah Pager: "A Turning Point for Mass Incarceration?"
Faye Taxman: "How Corrections Systems Can Deter Future Crime"
Daniel Nagin: "Imprisonment and Crime: Can both be Reduced?"
