How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment

On 26 February, FARE will be hosting a lunchtime forum at Parliament House with UCLA's Mark Kleiman, author of When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment. Mark is one of my favourite criminologists, and I'd recommend the event for anyone interested in crime and punishment.

How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment

FARE invites you to a lunchtime forum with special guest Mark Kleiman, hosted by Member for Fraser Andrew Leigh MP

Tuesday 26 February, 2013
Room 1R1, Parliament House, Canberra

Mark Kleiman is Professor of Public Policy in the UCLA School of Public Affairs. He teaches courses on methods of policy analysis, on imperfectly rational decision-making at the individual and social level, and on drug abuse and crime control policy. His current focus is on reducing crime and incarceration by substituting swiftness and predictability for severity in the criminal justice system generally and in community-corrections institutions specifically.

Professor Kleiman is the author of When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment, listed by The Economist as one of the “Books of the Year” for 2009. In addition to his academic work, Professor Kleiman provides advice to local, state, and national
governments on crime control and drug policy. Before moving to UCLA in 1995, he taught at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and at the University of Rochester.
