Correctional Reform Associations
Historical Role Of Nongovernmental Organizations, More Recent Sentencing Reforms And Ngos, Conclusion, Bibliography
Throughout U.S. history nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have played a decisive role in correctional reform and the evolution of the penal system. As governmental control of the justice system has grown, NGOs have continued to exert a large influence on public policy decisions that involve the corrections system; indeed, their role has increased in the last quarter century.
