Event description

Description

This symposium is for those who work or volunteer with people in conflict with the law and/or victims of crime. Participants will hear current research illuminating how practitioners, volunteers, and community organizations work in and alongside the criminal justice system. In addition to sharing ideas through presentations, we hope this symposium leads to the exchange of good ideas and meaningful conversations

Sheridan sits on land that has been and still is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations, Anishinaabe Nation, Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. It is our collective responsibility to honour and respect those who have gone before us, those who are here, and those who have yet to come. We are grateful for the opportunity to be working on this land.



This symposium includes a keynote lecture from Dr Philippa Tomczak |Leverhulme Trust Early Career Research Fellow, University of Sheffield Centre for Criminological Research.

Philippa authored the first monograph on The Penal Voluntary Sector, which received impressive reviews. Her research explores the diverse voluntary organisations that comprise the criminal justice voluntary sector, their varied relationships with statutory agencies and the effects of such work. Her work grapples with questions like: What work do voluntary organisations do with prisoners and probationers? How do they manage to undertake their work? What are the effects of charitable work with prisoners and probationers?
