The criminal justice system opines punishment as a primary response to the criminality. Punishing the criminals is a paramount duty of all civilized Nations. Incapacitation and incarceration were the preferred methods of punishment. So, the prison has been a form of punishment and history reveals the evolution of the types of prisons across the globe. It is evident from the historical literature that the prison environment is depicted as deplorable and inhumane. Prison environment varies widely around the world and the wide range of prison conditions reflects how each country treats its criminals.

With the evolution of prison reforms and prisoner’s rights across the globe, the punitive reaction approach paved toward humanizing punishment leading to the genesis of correctional ideology. Corrections birthed from penology, but hold a philosophy separate from mere penalizing.

The rationale behind corrections was to reform and restore. Corrections are not limited to prisons but also extend to community corrections through probation, parole etc. Correctional philosophy underlies such a mode of addressing criminal behaviour. In India, the reformation wave spread in the late twentieth century and as of now, we have our places of incarceration being called places offering corrections.

The ICFAI Law School is organizing the Conference in collaboration with the Academy of Prisons and Correctional Administration (APCA), Vellore and the Institute of Correctional Administration (ICA), Chandigarh on 10th and 11th April 2020.
