Hug a Thug

Do you think the criminal justice system is a soft touch? Do you think that prisons make life too easy for criminals? Would you like to bring back hanging? Then this show is for you! During the show you will hear the stories of prisoners and victims, many of whom committed crimes from a young age. You will also have the chance to design your ideal prison. Academics at the University of Edinburgh will challenge your preconceptions about crime and punishment. You’ll leave wanting to hug a thug, or your money back!

Professor Lesley McAra, Chair of Penology & Professor Susan McVie, Quantitative Criminology, School of Law, The University of Edinburgh
