Who Goes to Prison?

Who Goes to Prison?

Contributing organization(s): National Council on Crime and Delinquency.

During 1987, approximately 340,000 persons were sent to state and federal prisons. The public, influenced by news stories of exceptionally violent crimes and politicians’ rhetoric, believe that all of these prisoners are dangerous and should serve lengthy prison terms. However, the facts suggest otherwise. The National Council on Crime and Delinquency’s (NCCD) research has shown that the vast majority of inmates…

  1. Creating A Global Agenda to Combat Child Pornography
  2. Contributing organization(s): International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. Today our society is permeated with sexually explicit and graphic materials that are widely available in nearly every setting and through nearly every mode of communication — print, audio, and video. The rapid growth in the availability of the Internet images during the last decade has posed additional challenges to the problem. Child pornography has become a genuine concern for parents, teachers, law…

  3. Deportation by Default: Mental Disability, Unfair Hearings, and Indefinite Detention in the US Immigration System
  4. Contributing organization(s): Human Rights Watch. Every year, several hundred thousand people in the United States are arrested for possible deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The vast majority are held in immigration detention, both during and even after their deportation hearings in immigration court. At least 15 percent of these immigration detainees — an estimated 57,000 people in 2008 — are thought to have a mental disability, some so severe that they do not know…

  5. I Used to Think the Law Would Protect Me: Illinois’ Failure to Test Rape Kits
  6. Contributing organization(s): Human Rights Watch. The DNA evidence in a sexual assault kit (“rape kit”), collected from a victim’s body after a rape, can provide critical investigative information. Yet new data collected by Human Rights Watch suggests that in Illinois, years after the crime, only one in five rape kits collected by police is tested. This gap represents lost justice for rape victims I Used to Think the Law Would Protect Me examines the reasons…

  7. Moving Upstream: Working Together to Create Healthier Communities
  8. Contributing organization(s): Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation. Our work is building on the growing recognition that health is the result not only of genes, lifestyle and medical treatment. It is also determined by the day-to-day circumstances in which we live and work. Through new programs and partnerships in early childhood development, housing and the environment, we are investing in areas that promise long-term impact on the health and vitality of Minnesota communities and…

  9. My So-Called Emancipation: From Foster Care to Homelessness for California Youth
  10. Contributing organization(s): Human Rights Watch. When children in foster care turn 18, they are, for the most part, on their own. They are called “emancipated” — they are legally adults and free from the foster care system. But many young people leave California’s foster care with no job or income, few educational prospects, and little emotional support or community connections. As a result, for these young people, emancipation can mean nowhere to turn and no place to go but…

  11. Tough, Fair, and Practical: A Human Rights Framework for Immigration Reform in the United States
  12. Contributing organization(s): Human Rights Watch. Americans from all political perspectives agree that US immigration laws need to be fixed. While some emphasize the need to be tough in enforcing immigration law, others emphasize the importance of fairness. Human rights law offers a practical framework embracing both of these policy goals that is in the interests of citizens and non-citizens alike. Human rights law recognizes every government’s sovereign right to enforce its laws and…

  13. U.S./European Summit on Missing & Exploited Children
  14. Contributing organization(s): International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children.

Wreck: graduate journal of art history, visual art & theory

The purpose of Wreck is to open a forum for graduate students to engage in larger debates enlivening the field of art history and visual culture today. The editors share an apprehension about the ceaseless circulation of academic fashions, and question the abandonment of valid ideas before they are fully realized. Envisioning these ideas as fraught wrecks exposes them to critical reexamination.

With its online format, the journal aims to explore the problems, promise, and potential of these ideas, as well as new approaches to the discipline, by reaching a wider audience and incorporating diverse media, including sound and video.

It is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Please click here to access.
