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 current best practices and new approaches to rehabilitation and correctional reform both within Canada and internationally.
