THE EXHIBITS

This semester, students registered in CRM 4302: Abolitionism and the Criminal Justice System at the University of Ottawa have been preparing exhibits examining prison issues and trends that have generated discussions about the need to expand the use of alternatives to incarceration and/or work towards prison abolition. Each of the exhibits seek to illustrate how the prison issues and trends showcased are currently depicted by abolitionist and/or non-abolitionist prisoners, penal system workers, government agencies, news outlets, and academics to raise questions about who benefits from, and who is harmed by, the deprivation of liberty and the infliction of pain in Canada’s jails, prisons, and penitentiaries.
