    I have a important question,Which of the following is a key difference between the Pennsylvania and New York Penitentiary theories of the 1800s?

    1. Can you say why this question is important?

  • Hey there! If I had the chance to meet someone with a ton of experience in drug policy reform, prison, and human rights, I'd be super excited to pick their brain. I'd ask them about innovative approaches to drug policy, like harm reduction strategies that focus on education, prevention, and treatment rather than punishment. I'd also be curious to hear their thoughts on restorative justice programs that aim to repair harm caused by crime and promote rehabilitation. For example, in some countries, they use community-based alternatives to incarceration, like drug courts or diversion programs, which have shown positive outcomes. I'd love to hear their take on these ideas and how they can be implemented effectively to create a fairer and more compassionate criminal justice system.

    3. Can you speak to any instances where you've had to navigate geopolitical tensions and conflicts while working on global policy initiatives?

If so, what time would you suggest changing it to? I'd love to hear your opinion on this matter.

  • After watching Jerome's video he did not change my mind about the curfews in Ecuador, but he has sparked two questions in my head. My first question is how does the PRI help prisoners have more humane punishments opposing being locked away and my second question is this method effective I wonder this because along with Jerome I am also very interested in this topic and believe prisons are unfair.
