Join Richard Vince (Executive Director of Security, HMPPS) and distinguished panel of academics: Professor Ben Crewe (University of Cambridge); Dr Susie Hulley (University of Cambridge); and Dr Serena Wright (Royal Holloway, University of London) in a discussion about life imprisonment.
The discussion draws on Richard’s operational and management experience, and the panel’s research involving interviews with almost 150 men and women serving long life sentences from an early age.
You will gain an advanced understanding of the experiences of life sentence prisoners including:
• the main problems that they encounter • the ways they seek to build a life in prison
• their sources of hope and meaning, and
• their feelings about the prison system and the legitimacy of their circumstances The discussion reflects on how we can best manage this growing cohort of men and women humanely and effectively.
