Criminal Justice Lunchtime Talk Series: Measuring Criminal Justice Reform -- Reducing Pretrial Detention in Turkey

What forces induce governments to seek reductions in pretrial detention? What are challenges in measuring the impact of reform in criminal justice systems? Join us for a lunch time discussion with Professor Todd Foglesong and Selen Siringil Perker, fellow at the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, who are examining these questions in the context of Turkey. In early 2013, the Prime Minister said "detention should only be used as a measure of last resort." The statement accompanied a marked decline in the frequency of detention in criminal courts. The discussion will focus on the question whether the reduction of pretrial detention in Turkey is a harbinger of other kinds of improvements, or whether even a dramatic "improvement" in justice can remain quarantined and separate from other operations, an isolated example of reform. Wednesday, April 2 at noonCarr Center Conference Room, Rubenstein 219 Lunch will be provided.
     Sponsored by the Criminal Justice PIC, KSSG, and the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management
