April 24, 2013
Time:Noon-2 p.m.
Description:The Edward A. Clark Center for Australian & New Zealand Studies launches its Fulbright Distinguished Speakers Series with a talk by Malcolm Feeley, whose research compares the Australian and American experiences with privatization of prisons. Australia leads the world in the proportion on inmates held in private prisons.

Feeley is the Claire Sanders Clements Dean's Chair Professor of Law at Berkeley Law School. Feeley's spent six months in Australia in 2012 as Fulbright Flinders University Distinguished Chair in American Political Science. Whereas privatization is taken for granted by both conservatives and liberals in Australia, in the U.S., it remains a highly controversial project. Feeley examines differences in public reactions to prison privatization, differences in the quality of services and programming in public versus private prisons and differences in the ways in which corrections officials approach privatization in the two countries.
