Peter Norden is a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology and an Honorary Fellow in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Deakin University. His lecture will outline the tragic state of criminal justice policy and debate throughout Australia at the present time, and the rapid expanse of ‘the penal estate’, strongly supported by private prison interests.
