Event Description:

Consequences for Communities w/ Todd Clear

March 5, 2015
New Building , Moot Court

The 2014-15 PRI Occasional Series on Reentry Research will highlight issues raised by the National Academy of Sciences’ groundbreaking report, The Growth of Incarceration in the United States: Causes and Consequences. Please join us on Thursday, March 5th, 2015, for the fifth installment in this series, which will feature keynote speaker Dr. Todd Clear, Provost Rutgers University-Newark, presenting his recent research “Predicting Crime Through Incarceration: The Impact of Rates of Prison Cycling on Rates of Crime in Communities”. This groundbreaking work, co-authored by Natasha Frost, Geert Dhondt, Michael Carr, and Anthony Braga explores the hypothesis that the effects of mass incarceration work to increase, rather than decrease, neighborhood crime rates. Additional speakers will be added as they are confirmed.

The event will be held in moot court on the sixth floor of John Jay College’s New Building, with bagels & coffee available at 8:30am and the speakers beginning promptly at 9am. In addition to remarks by each featured speaker, the day will include a moderated panel discussion and audience Q & A.

Todd Clear is Provost Rutgers University-Newark; previously, he was Dean of the School of Criminal Justice. In 1978, he received a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from The University at Albany. Clear has also held professorships at Ball State University, Florida State University (where he was also Associate Dean of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice) and John Jay College of Criminal Justice (where he held the rank of Distinguished Professor). He has authored 13 books and over 100 articles and book chapters. His most recent book is The Punishment Imperative, by NYU Press. Clear has also written on community justice, correctional classification, prediction methods in correctional programming, community-based correctional methods, intermediate sanctions, and sentencing policy. He is currently involved in studies of the criminological implications of “place,” and the economics of justice reinvestment.
