Tony Doob on Solitary Confinement

September 24, 2020 by Cate MacLeod

Professor Emeritus Anthony Doob was interviewed on the most recent episode of the Docket podcast. From the Docket:

Anthony Doob is an important voice in the criminal justice debate. Professor emeritus and a long-serving director of the Centre of Criminology at the University of Toronto, he is highly regarded for his research into our justice system. 

Last year, Doob was appointed as chair of the panel of independent researchers appointed to review reforms to solitary confinement in Canada’s prisons. There was no review because corrections refused to provide the panel with any data.
