Description

Inspired by an internship at Billerica House of Corrections, I have found interest in conducting research on the different frameworks used for incarceration across the world. I am focusing on comparing the recidivism rates between rehabilitative and punitive prison systems. Especially in countries that have decriminalized drugs, the treatment component has been enhanced tremendously. Their success in rehabilitation forces us to question if our system is truly a broken system; reinforcing our concept of stereotypical “criminal behavior.”
