Guest Post: Mum…on Australia’s inadequate Criminal Justice system

This is the first in what I hope to be a semi-regular occurrence here at the Amplify Fitness blog. The handful of regular readers will hopefully enjoy hearing someone else’s voice every now and then, and this time you will actually be hearing a voice. Fittingly, the first guest post is coming from my Mum, Dr Julie-Anne Toohey.

Mum was recently invited to record a podcast for the University of Adelaide and I’m very proud to share it all with you. I’m biased but I think it’s a really fantastic episode and I encourage you to listen to it. Here’s the preview from the site:

“This revolving-door nature of our criminal justice system not only incurs a high price in the running of our state and federal prisons, but also inflicts lasting wounds on the families and communities of those behind bars. 

But there is an argument to be made for turning our approach to recidivism on its head, and the answers we may need can be found in Norway…

This week, host Professor Andy Lowe chats with Dr Julie-Anne Toohey from the School of Social Sciences, School of Arts, Business, Law and Economics at Adelaide University. Join us, as we rethink reoffence and challenge the jailhouse rules of our current justice system.”
