About the Webinar

Do we need more cops or something else? Harm reduction or treatment? Does incarceration reduce crime or make things worse? The debate about Canada’s criminal justice system has rarely been so polarized – or so in need of fresh ideas. Join Benjamin Perrin, a UBC law professor, as he shares the latest research on the challenges facing the criminal justice system and fresh ideas for a new transformative justice vision from his upcoming book, Indictment: The Criminal Justice System on Trial (University of Toronto Press, October 2023). Indictment has been hailed as “revolutionary” and named one of Indigo’s Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2023.

This is a previously recorded webinar. The recording includes a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period by LIVE attendees. If you are interested in attending one of our upcoming webinars, look under the Upcoming Events tab.
