On June 13th-14th 2019, we are hosting a conference at the University of Agder, Norway. Researchers with expertise on prisons and punishment in the Nordic countries will present their analysis while our team will be discussing the ongoing findings from our comparative study of penal policymaking and prisoner experiences in England & Wales and Norway.

logo The Comparative Penology Group is led by Dr Ben Crewe and his research team who, since 2016, have been working on a five-year project titled: 'Penal policymaking and the prisoner experience: a comparative analysis'.

The research is based in England & Wales, and Norway, and involves four inter-related studies of (a) penal policymaking and the penal field (b) the experience of entry into and release from custody (c) the daily experiences of female prisoners and imprisoned sex offenders, and (d) prisoners in the most secure parts of each jurisdiction's prison system.

This project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC).
