Freeing Criminal Justice Policy from Politics: Reversing Mass Incarceration


America's criminal justice system reflects irrational fears stoked by politicians seeking to win an election. In Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration, NYU Professor of Law Rachel Barkowpoints to specific policies that are morally problematic and have failed to end the cycle of recidivism. Barkow argues that reform guided by evidence, not politics and emotions, will reduce crime and reverse mass incarceration.

Join The Raben Group for a timely conversation between Professor Barkow and NPR Justice Correspondent Carrie Johnson on ways to free criminal justice policy from the irrationalities of politics.
