2020 • 3 years 4 months • Criminal Justice

Salzburg Global Seminar (Salzburg Global) is an independent non-profit organization born out of conflict in 1947 to challenge current and future leaders to shape a more just, creative, and equitable world. It hosts multi-year programs on global topics as diverse as health care, education, urban planning, open government, culture, economics, geopolitics, and justice. The aim is to inspire new thinking and action, and to foster lasting networks and partnerships for innovative and sustainable systems and institutional change. The award supports Salzburg Global to develop and organize a cross-national interdisciplinary program on current structural, legal, economic, and social weaknesses and inefficiencies of judicial and correctional systems and emerging trends in criminal justice reform in different global contexts. By taking a cross-national perspective, the aim is to identify the most innovative and effective approaches, tools, and technologies across different sectors to enhance community safety and cohesion and reduce crime and incarceration. The project includes a series of programs at Salzburg Global Seminar, follow-up workshops in the United States, and the development of pilot collaborations and communications products.
