The Hidden Casualties of Covid? Understanding Prison Staff Well-Being in a Crisis
Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and the travel restrictions that many jurisdictions are facing, it was decided to cancel the 2020 Correctional Research Symposium and organize instead an online dialogue. The 90-minute session is planned to take place on 15 April 2021, between 15:00 – 16:30 CET, via the Zoom platform.
Why are prison staff so invisible in the current pandemic?

Alison Liebling and Guillermo Sanhueza will moderate the dialogue with Prison Service leaders and experts from Portugal, Singapore, Sweden and Oregon (US).
