    Prison Law: Researching Health and Legal Implications of Aging Prison Populations

    Wednesday December 9, 2020
    1:00 - 2:15 PM ET


    Dr. Iftene will present on the substance and the methodology of her biggest project to date. This project was built around the experiences of older prisoners, the challenges individuals face in Canadian penitentiaries, and their struggles for justice. Through firsthand accounts and quantitative data drawn from extensive interviews, her work brings forward the experiences of federally incarcerated people living their "golden years" behind bars. These experiences show the limited ability of the system to respond to heightened needs, while also raising questions about how international and national laws and policies are applied, and why they fail to ensure the safety and well-being of incarcerated individuals.


    Dr. Adelina Iftene is an Assistant Professor and the Criminal Justice Specialization Coordinator at Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, as well as the Associate Director of the Health Law Institute at Dalhousie. Adelina teaches criminal law, evidence and imprisonment and prison policy. Her major research work explores issues related to prison health and access to justice for prisoners, and her manuscript “Punished for Aging: Vulnerabilities, Rights, and Access to Justice in Canadian Penitentiaries,” was published by University of Toronto Press in 2019.
