This special edition of SACQ seeks to explore impediments to social justice advancement towards real prison reform globally. Emerging societies Like South Africa and marginalized communities in the developed world like North America and Europe continue to bear the brunt of incarceration, violent policing and other forms of institutionalisation. Globalization of incarceration and penitentiary systems in both the developing and the developed world do nothing to challenge criminalization of poverty. Instead, progress is marked by advances in incarceration technologies.
