Moving targets: framing Ashley Smith's death in an era of rights, risk and institutional protectionismExport this event to calendar

Thursday, February 26, 2015 — 5:30 PM EST

Sixth Annual James E. Curtis Memorial Lecture

Presented by Kelly Hannah-Moffat, University of Toronto Mississauga and Centre of Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, University of Toronto.

This lecture focuses on recent rights violations and deaths in custody and examines the institutional responses to these incidents to explore systemic issues of accountability, institutional accessibility, and the reframing of correctional policy and prisoner's rights. 

It examines the subtleties of rights and accountability in punishment and concerns that can apply to a  variety of public institutions. Using the specific story of Ashley Smith, it offers an analysis of how a country like Canada that sees itself as an international leader in human rights and has genuinely worked hard at integrating human rights norms into law, policy and institutional procedures, fails to ensure substantive justice consequences.

Kelly Hannah-Moffat has published extensively on risk, punishment, parole, gender and diversity, specialized courts (domestic violence, Aboriginal, community/wellness and drug courts), and criminal justice decision-making. As well, she has participate din commissions of inquiry, inquests, and legal cases that pertain to penal reform and human rights.
