Over the past 30 years, many jurisdictions have put into place legal statutes allowing for the indeterminate sentencing of offenders judged to be at "high risk" of future violence. But can individuals at "high risk" of such antisocial acts be reliably and accurately identified? This lecture will present an overview of laws from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Australia. Anyone interested in the intersection between international law, criminal sentencing, and psychology should attend. Co-sponsored by GPSAFC and Open to the Graduate Community. Food will be served.
