Corrections has a difficult time standing still. A new challenge always seems to be around the corner. The recent COVID pandemic is good example of a disruption that has caught corrections by surprise. But more routinely, correctional services around the world often have to respond quickly to changing circumstances, new legislation, fiscal restraint, tragic incidents and a steady stream of public or political pressure to change course, alter policy or implement new practice. Corrections is unfortunately too often pushed towards change rather than allowed to be farsighted and evidence-driven in planning for its own change. For this Edition of Advancing Corrections, we want to ask contributors to reflect on what change should look like for corrections in the next decade. Our theme for the Edition is ‘Envisioning Corrections in 2030: Where Should the Evidence Take Us?’ We know that there is often a significant lag in translating and consolidating ‘what we know’ into practical approaches to ‘what we do.’ In tackling some of the core issues we face in corrections, perhaps we can reduce that lag by outlining a clear picture of where we should try to get to and why. We want to welcome visioning contributions that relate to each of ICPA’s strategic focal points:
We welcome both evidence and practice-informed ‘visioning’ discussions for any of these topic areas. More generally, however, we also welcome discussion of innovation in delivery of services through partnership with NGOs and the private sector, with the application of new technology, and with the most recent developments in prison architecture and design.
In submitting your manuscript, we ask that you provide a succinct summary of how your paper relates to this theme. As with previous Editions of Advancing Corrections, preference will be given to manuscripts which show respect for evidence and where either qualitative or quantitative analysis is provided.
