Innovations in Prison design, technology and management must be considered if Australia is to compete with the impressively low rates of recidivism overseas.

Widespread prison closures and subsequent overcrowding have serious implications for prison culture, inmate human rights, and reoffending.

But which innovations yield the best results? And who will fund these developments?

Uniting prisons, policy makers, investors and design and technology innovators, Prisons 2017 conference will critically analyse the current prison system in Australia and explore possibilities for improvement.
