Panel discussion

Police and prison are population and labour force management tools whose primary social function is to maintain social hierarchies and enforce exploitative social relations. As such, the police-prison  nexus  is  instrumental  to  capitalism and  is  an  obstacle  towards  a  radical  social-ecological transformation. This panel discussion will gather critical prisons and police activists and experts to discuss the social role of the police-prison nexus, how it may prevent any progressive and radical social-ecological transformation as well as possible alternatives.

Speakers:
Serge and Floréal are anti-prisons activists from Paris, France.
Angelika Adensamer is a lawyer and criminologist from Vienna who specializes on police, police  violence,  surveillance  and  the  right  to  demonstrate  and  has  published  extensively  on these  topics.  Angelika  is  also  a  co-founder  of  LINKS and  was  one  of  the party’s three  chief candidates for the 2020 municipal elections in Vienna.
