Robina Annual Conference
American Exceptionalism in Crime & Punishment
The term “American exceptionalism” desribes the tendency for US policies to diverge sharply from other Western countries. Building on the research of speakers Nicola Lacey and David Soskice, both of Oxford University, the conference will examine the case of American exceptionalism and will compare US criminal justice policies with those in other developed nations. The conference aims to develop proposals for how the US system might be reformed moving forward.
