[CANCELLED] Exclusion and Extraction: A Symposium on Criminal Justice Contact and Labor Reallocation

April 17, 2020


This event has been cancelled.

Featuring legal scholars, social scientists, justice reform leaders, and others, this symposium will highlight emerging research on the role of the penal state in shaping the flow of individuals into and out of the labor market. Panels will examine how the state excludes justice-involved individuals from labor market opportunities, while also extracting labor from the same individuals caught in the web of various penal arrangements.


Schedule and panel details forthcoming.
