Speaker information

Dr Sacha Darker, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Westminster, Dr Sacha Darke is Senior Lecturer in Criminology and co-director of the Research Centre for Equality and Criminal Justice in the Department of History, Sociology and Criminology, University of Westminster.

Brazilian prisons are characterised by extraordinarily high levels of imprisonment, overcrowding and understaffing. Explanations for Brazilian punitivism largely reflect those that have been associated with the global export of American penal policies. Brazil is far more than an exemplary case of contemporary global punitivism, however.
