Description of original award (Fiscal Year 1997, $498,812)

This project will bring together criminal justice researchers and ì
practioners with particular expertise in sentencing and ì
corrections for the purpose of identifying the most significant ì
issues facing corrections and discussing how those issues can be ì
addressed through both changed sentencing policies and changed ì
correctional practice. Five seminars will be held over three ì
years. Each seminar will be based on a review of the available ì
research and papers will be commissioned from experts in the ì
selected topics. It is anticipated that these commissioned ì
papers, along with the recorded collective thinking of the ì
foremost scholars and practioners in corrections, will serve to ì
guide public policy and correctional practice in both the ì
immediate and more distant future.
