Pre-Conference Graduate Student Research Symposium

Event Start Date:
21st October 2018
Event End Date:
21st October 2018
Montréal Marriott Chateau Champlain, Montréal, Canada

The Canadian Criminal Justice Association (CCJA) in conjunction with the International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) and the Correctional Service Canada (CSC) will be hosting a Pre-Conference Graduate Student Research Symposium on Sunday the 21st of October, 2018 in Montreal, Canada.

The symposium is being made possible with the sponsorship of the International Association for Correctional and Forensic Psychology (IACFP) and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS). The Symposium aims to profile the most recent North American applied research in the field of corrections. Held prior to the official opening of ICPA’s 20th anniversary conference, the Symposium will provide opportunity for graduate students to share their findings, to stimulate discussion with other researchers and to attract interest for the importance of evidence-informed correctional policies and practices by world correctional leaders and practitioners attending the ICPA annual conference.

The Symposium will focus on the evidence base for various aspects of correctional practice including risk assessment, the effects of the custodial experience, correctional programs and interventions, education, and community supervision and reintegration. Given the contemporary prevalence of health issues, including addictions and mental health, and Indigenous over-incarceration, it is expected that these will be covered in workshops as well.

Who Should Attend?:

  • Academics and researchers hoping to learn from results of recent North American research;
  • Prison Directors and Governors who can apply best practices garnered from research;
  • Practitioners and Senor Officials directing correctional policies and programmes.
