RESISTING CARCERAL NATION STATES: THE FIFTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PENAL ABOLITION (ICOPA 15)

JUNE 13 – 15, 2014

UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA ALGONQUIN TERRITORY / OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA

 

Carceral nation states across the world know no bounds as they work to sustain economic, gender, sexual and racial inequality. In the Canadian context, the carceral nation state has used exclusionary practices in a stated effort to keep 'us' safe from 'them' - the 'criminals', Indigenous peoples 'in need of civilizing' and 'assimilation', 'problem' drug users, 'bogus' refugee claimants, 'threats' to national security, political 'dissidents', and other dehumanized and demonized populations.


People currently or formerly imprisoned, victims of state and personal harm, activists, advocates, artists, academics, journalists, professionals, along with others from around the world are invited to take part, in person or by proxy, in ICOPA 15 on Algonquin Territory / Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. During this international conference participants will come together to: 1) share their first-hand experiences of state brutality and tactics of resistance; 2) exchange ideas on how to think about and respond to complex community issues that are often met with costly, unproductive, unjust, and violent interventions; and 3) build international alliances and develop strategies to struggle against state repression and work towards social justice in our world.
