Rebecca Ginsburg traveled to Uganda in July 2017 at the invitation of that country’s prisons service. The purpose of her visit was to prepare the groundwork for producing a reentry resource for Uganda, and she accordingly met with individuals currently behind bars, those who had previously served time, and family members of those incarcerated. In this talk, she describes current conditions in Ugandan prisons, the challenges faced by people released back into their communities, and what the U.S. can possibly learn from the Ugandan approach to incarceration.
