Prison

Professor Yvonne Jewkes, Research Professor in Criminology, delivered her keynote speech on prison architecture, design and space and how this impacts on prisoner behaviour last Friday 2nd June.

‘Prison Architecture and Design in the Context of Reform’, was held at the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) London headquarters, and follows a major, international ESRC funded research study into prison architecture, design and technology by the universities of Brighton and Birmingham.

Professor Jewkes led the three-year study, with co-investigator Dominique Moran from the University of Birmingham. The study called for new prisons to provide conditions similar to living conditions in society.
