overview

Australia’s prison population is on the rise. First surpassing 40,000 in 2017, our nation now houses over 42,000 inmates – a significant increase on the 26,000 only a decade ago.

As state governments continue to face mounting challenges associated with housing so many prisoners, the pressure is now on to help stem prisoner growth and match the low recidivism rates of other countries around the world.

Prisons 2019 is a two-day, national conference designed to facilitate thought-provoking insight into the life cycle of correctional facilities and explore what more can be done to support those incarcerated in them.

Join us on 9-10 July 2019 at the Mercure Brisbane as we discuss some of the most pertinent issues currently facing the corrections systems, including:

  • How are Australia’s prisons currently performing?
  • How is new legislation impacting correctional facilities?
  • What new and innovative techniques are needed to finance, construct, and deliver new prisons and expand services?
  • Are pop-up prisons and modular construction viable options for delivering urgently needed bed space?
  • How does prison design impact those who live, work and visit there?
  • How can the introduction of contemporary technologies assist prison workers and support prisoners to re-enter society?
  • What is the relationship between overcrowding and mental health? How does this impact prisoner outcomes and recidivism?
  • Why are Indigenous persons far more likely to be incarcerated?
