Foreword: Alternatives to Imprisonment - Recent International Developments
9 Pages Posted: 10 Apr 2019
Date Written: March 24, 2019
This special issue of Law and Contemporary Problems on alternative to imprisonments explores recent experiences in several western nations, surveying a range of alternative sanctions and programs, and draw conclusions about their relative effectiveness. Much of the literature on alternatives is specific to a single jurisdiction; there has been insufficient learning across boundaries, despite the obvious common elements of sanctions in different countries. This special issue contains papers initially presented at an international conference held in May 2018, at the Faculty of Law, University of Haifa. The issue aims to encourage greater dialogue between scholars with a view to promoting greater awareness of the successful elements of an alternative sanction.
