Workshop: Drugs, Violence and Rock and Roll

Irvin Waller (Professor Emeritus) and Audrey Monette (MA student) cordially invite you to Drugs, Violence and Rock and Roll: A Workshop. The event is free and will be held at the University of Ottawa from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm on August 16, 2018 (Room FSS 10003).

The one-day workshop will include three generations of crime prevention and criminology specialists discussing how to shift Canada – sustainably – from a punishment to a prevention agenda. The prevention agenda focuses on social policy solutions to mental health, housing, addictions, poverty, Indigenous issues, and discrimination combined with effective targeted social prevention solutions to street and gender violence. It also advocates for alternatives such as restorative justice, the least punitive intervention, and deliberate reductions in policing and prison use.

Please note that places are limited. If you would like to attend, you must RSVP by sending an email to Audrey Monette ( by August 13, 2018
