Robina Institute Releases New Publication: Levers of Change in Parole Release and Revocation

The Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice is pleased to release today “Levers of Change in Parole Release and Revocation,” a new report that highlights the significant discretion paroling authorities hold in making release decisions, which in turn shape American prisons. In light of this often underutilized power, the report offers twelve “levers of change,” or ways states can reform release processes to support safe reductions in prison populations.

The publication was funded by Arnold Ventures, a philanthropy dedicated to tackling some of the most pressing problems in the United States. Driven by a mission to maximize opportunity and minimize injustice, it invests in sustainable change, building it from the ground up based on research, deep thinking, and a strong foundation of evidence.
