Although attitudes to, and practices of, criminal justice implementation have improved dramatically over the past century, there remain many aspects of the criminal justice system in the western world that still require new ways of thinking and implementation. These include effective rehabilitation, creative correctional practices and evidence-based approaches and practices that significantly prevent criminological behaviour or reduce recidivism.

This symposium anticipates a diversity of speakers and workshop presentations that will explore the current best practices in all these areas from within Canada and the international community.
