That This House Believes Retribution has no Place in Justice
Wednesday, 7:15pm, The GMB Chamber
Many of us associate the administration of justice with the use of iron bars. But can this truly be called just, or is it merely a brutal hangover from a draconian penal system?
Is it in any way moral to cage a fellow human being, and does locking away our problems benefit society or the offender? What is the role of imprisonment in our society – is it an effective form of rehabilitation, does it reduce crime or is such a method of punishment warranted at all. We discuss this oft-neglected issue this Wednesday at 7:15pm.
Chair: Michael McDowell, Former Minister for Justice
Senator Ivana Bacik, Reid Professor of Criminal Law
Dr. David Kenny, TCD Lecturer of Law
