With the world’s largest prison population and recidivism rates above 75%, our prisons are full but ineffective. In part two of our interview with Professor Rachel Barkow of NYU Law, we explore the potential for reform. Barkow first looks at some promising trends across the country from decriminalizations to reductions in mandatory sentencing. Later, Barkow offers evidence-based suggestions for broader reforms that could help to reverse the nation's failed experiment with mass incarceration.
