Making a Difference through Social Research on Prisons, Health and Justice

eileen-baldry and carla-treloar event

The Centre for Social Research in Health &
UNSW Practical Justice Initiative

present a special combined event:

Eileen Baldry in conversation with Carla Treloar

Throughout her career, Eileen Baldry has worked to bring attention to the complexity of people's lives in the equally complex criminal justice system. Homelessness, mental health, cognitive disability, experiences of Indigenous people and transitions from prison are some of the areas Eileen's academic and advocacy work has drawn attention to. But, what works? What makes a difference? What can we ask of criminal justice systems to address seemingly intractable injustices? 

Refreshments will be provided after the seminar.
