The Great Experiment: Realigning Criminal Justice in California and Beyond

February 29, 2016
This webinar assessed the impact of Realignment in California and its implications for decarceration nationally.

The Economist has called Realignment in California “one of the great experiments in American incarceration policy.”  The Realignment policy adopted in 2011 has resulted in a large-scale shift of correctional resources and supervision from the state level to local counties.

This webinar assessed the impact of Realignment and its implications for decarceration nationally. The panelists highlighted key findings reported in the current issue of The Annals, “The Great Experiment: Realigning Criminal Justice in California and Beyond, “ co-edited by Charis Kubrin and Carroll Seron of the University of California, Irvine.

The webinar slides are available here, and a video recording can be viewed below and here.
