1512 - Criminal Justice and Social Justice

Sat, August 10, 4:30 to 6:10pm, New York Hilton, Floor: Second Floor, Clinton

Session Submission Type: Invited Session


Issues of social justice and criminal justice processes are deeply connected in United States society. Agents of the criminal justice system have long played a role in the enforcement of hierarchical boundaries like race and class. In the contemporary U.S., mass incarceration and militaristic police surveillance has resulted in a criminal justice system that is deeply raced, classed, and gendered and that operates to reproduce social inequalities. This panel interrogates the processes of the criminal justice system and the implications of the current system for projects of social justice.
