In Week 2, you will be required to select a country that you wish to do research on and select 2 prisons in that country as well as 2 in the US. Only ONE person can select a specific country so if someone selects it, you must select anothercountry so get in the discussion early. Also once someone selects a US prison, it cannot be used again. Once you have selected your country and the 2 US prisons to compare it to, you will be required to startyour research
1. You will then research the US prisons that you believe are similar to your country (it can be one that is no longer in existence)
2. You need to look at the structure and function of the prison and explain the rationale behind the prison system. How was this prison built? How many people is it housing? What is the rationale behind the prison-Rehabilitation or retribution?
3. You will then devise a prison system that you believe will incorporate aspects of all of the prisons that you have done research on. You will explain programs that you think are successful versus the ones that are less successful.
4.You need to make a presentation in order to “teach the class” about this prison system and the types of laws in this country. You will compare the different prison systems and explain how andwhy the US system varies. Make sure you explain the daily routines, visiting rules and regulations and types of programs that are implemented.
The Country I chose is France. The two US prison systems I picked is Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility (CFCF) and Clinton Correctional Facility. Please do the assignment based off of the Country and two US prison I chose.
