About this product
- DescriptionFollowing the Second World War, liberal nation-states sought to address injustices of the past. Canada's government began to consider its own implication in various past wrongs, and in the late twentieth century it began to implement reparative justice initiatives for historically marginalized people. Yet despite this shift, there are more Indigeus and racialized people in Canadian prisons w than at any other time in history. Carmela Murdocca examines this disconnect between the political motivations for amending historical injustices and the vastly disproportionate reality of the penal system - a troubling contradiction that is often igred.
- Author BiographyCarmela Murdocca is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology at York University and a member of York's graduate programs in sociology, socio-legal studies, and social and political thought.
