Máximo Sozzo, Book Symposium: Prisons, Inmates and Governance in Latin America
This semester, Edinburgh Law School welcomes Máximo Sozzo from the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in Argentina as a MacCormick Fellow. Maximo is a leading figure in the current movement for a Southern Criminology and works on comparative penal politics in Latin America. Máximo recently published an edited collection, Prisons, Inmates and Governance in Latin America (Palgrave, 2022), which presents a detailed exploration of various prison governance contexts across nine countries in the Latin American region, aiming to contribute to a decolonized dialogue of prison studies between the Global North and South. At this event, we will discuss Máximo's work with special contributions from readers highlighting different aspects of the book. You are invited to join us for this book discussion, and for a drinks reception after
This event is free and open to all.
