The 5th Biennial Alberta Criminal Justice Symposium

Submitted by on 2019/03/20 – 8:30 am

The 5th Biennial Alberta Criminal Justice Symposium: Considering New Approaches to Rehabilitation and Correctional Reform will be held at MacEwan University in Edmonton on May 7-9.

Although attitudes to, and practices of, criminal justice implementation have improved dramatically over the past century, there remain many aspects of the criminal justice system in the western world that still require new ways of thinking and implementation. These include effective rehabilitation, creative correctional practices and evidence-based approaches and practices that significantly prevent criminological behaviour or reduce recidivism.

This symposium anticipates a diversity of speakers and workshop presentations that will explore the current best practices in all these areas from within Canada and the international community.

Proposed Key themes:

  • Mental Health, Addictions and Diversion
  • Prison and Correctional Reform
  • Multiculturalism and Diversity
  • Harm Reduction
  • Youth and Gangs
  • Restorative Justice / Truth and Reconciliation
