Crim­i­nal jus­tice reform

TagLast edit: 31 May 2021 18:59 UTC by EA Wiki assistant

The criminal justice reform tag covers posts related to improving the criminal justice system in a variety of ways. Most EA work in this area is focused on the United States, but posts about other areas of the world are also welcome.

Further detail

Crime can be costly to society, and incarceration can also be costly: to the government that funds prisons, and to the individuals whose freedoms are curtailed. Criminal justice reform focuses on improving the criminal justice and prison systems to reduce these imprisonment costs.

Criminal justice reform is particularly promising in the United States. It is also unusually tractable, due to the adverse US fiscal situation and the confluence of liberal and conservative interest in this area. For these reasons, the Open Philanthropy Project considers criminal justice reform a promising intervention, and has funded several charities working in this space (Open Philanthropy Project 2016).
