How to Fix Solitary Confinement in American Prisons

Reiter Book CoverKeramet Reiter, Assistant Professor at UC Irvine and former ISSI Graduate Fellow, explains how to improve the conditions and processes of solitary confinement in this Los Angeles Times editorial.

Professor Reiter will discuss her new book, 23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long Term Solitary, at a CSRC event on November 3.

CRSC affiliated faculty member Jovan Scott Lewis was quoted in a USA Today article about same day delivery being less available in neighborhoods with large African American populations, "The Amazon algorithm operates off of an inherited cartography of previous redlining efforts, which created pockets of discrimination, the consequence being that the discrimination continues to be reproduced.”
