Australia has seen continually rising prison population figures over recent years. This has created problems for state governments with swelling numbers putting pressure on already crowded facilities.

Prisons 2020 will focus on the need for raised investment in prison infrastructure, innovation in design and operating performance of correctional facilities alongside prisoner educational and wellbeing programs that aim to reduce incarceration figures.

This event will be 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 7-8 July 2020 at the Aerial UTS Function Centre, Sydney 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?
