From Nagle to Now...the Changing Penal landscape

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

In 1974 the brutal suppression of a riot at Bathurst Gaol led to a ground-breaking review of the NSW prison service. Some 45 years ago the Nagle Royal Commission promised to fundamentally change the culture and outcomes of the prison industry. The Nagle report provided a range of recommendations concerned with issues such as prisoner numbers, prisoner rights, sentencing, and the physical treatment of prisoners. In the 40 years since Nagle’s report was delivered to the government the prison landscape has changed, however many of these same issues remain. We present a critical analysis of contemporary incarceration and examine some of the pressing issues that have emerged
in contemporary Australian penology since Nagle’s review. We examine these issues with reference to Nagle’s original findings and compare the current situation in NSW today, to focus specifically on:
• the impact of increasing remand imprisonment;
• the causes and consequences of criminalisation for care experienced people in the prison
system; and,
• Law and Order mythologies, media reporting of crime and justice, and its impact on the contemporary prison.
