To see this, we need to focus on the sending countries and the context from which these migrants came. Normally, economic conditions are limited Living on borrowed time 113 in the sending country. (We know that labour migrants seek economic advantage in the receiving state.) Most labour migrants emigrate from states with precarious access to food, medical care and jobs.

the hall of mirrors that is the War on Drugs. This oppressed group forms a natural constituency for libertarian socialists and anarchists of every hue; principled action against the War on Drugs might well help to galvanise these groups and their constituencies. The process of resistance has already begun in the United States where it is currently being led by the Drug Policy Alliance, an organisation that is supported by neoliberal backers. In that enormous nation, the sheer number of incarcerated Black and Hispanic people is now beginning to create the opportunity

A 1995 policy document unequivocally stated that the ‘Labour Party is opposed in principle to the privatisation of prisons . . . It is not appropriate for people to profit out of incarceration.’ 43 In government, however, this was outweighed by economic considerations, and

of encroachment on local judicial policy, and the manpower available to it to carry out the pursuit, investigation and punishment of offenders. The level of support of the secular arm affected the tribunal’s ability to prosecute Jews as well as other offenders at the local level. Another consequence of the variation between Inquisitorial tribunals was the differing intensities of trial procedure and punishment, from harsh policies of incarceration and intense interrogations to those proceedings which allowed Jews to remain at home and sometimes negotiate the

The continuing narrative Democratization is a continuing process as the internal boundaries of American nationhood are challenged and redrawn in various ways, for instance by the Japanese American movement to win compensation for wartime incarceration, and by the United States’ international roles in defending liberal democracy against alternative ideologies and belief systems – what the political scientist Samuel Huntington calls the ‘clash of civilizations’ (1996

Literary satire and Oskar Panizza’s Psichopatia criminalis (1898)

drowned by Ludwig II.10 In a bitter twist of fate, just a few years after the publication of Psichopatia criminalis, Gudden’s son was responsible for judging the state of Panizza’s deteriorating mental health. From the opening of Psichopatia criminalis, Panizza creates the ­dialectic in his framing narrative by representing the voice of the first-­ person narrator as that of the chief psychiatrist for the German nation. This practitioner holds the view that German revolutionaries should be incarcerated and undergo psychiatric treatment as a new way to prevent civil

It was a call that would eventually mean marginality, exile, martyrdom, arrest and incarceration. Distributing Pound reviewed C. H. Douglas’s Economic Democracy in 1920. How he came to be reading economic theory at this time, he explained in another of his retrospectives, ‘Murder by Capital’, published in The Criterion in July 1933.

. 252). Once arrived in London, O’Neil meets with a series of disappointments that convince him of the ‘gross’ and ‘immoral’ tendency of popular literary tastes, demanding, as he sees it, nothing short of authorial ‘prostitution’ ( The castle chapel , vol. 1, p. 258). O’Neil eventually abandons his literary aspirations, not least because they prove the tool by which his secret enemy, Mr Mordaunt, manages to have him imprisoned for treason and subsequently incarcerated in a private asylum for the insane. 4 While O’Neil's literary career, like his travels themselves

Most notably, UN committees and treaty monitoring bodies have been increasingly expressing their concern with aspects of Indigenous life conditions, with the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (land rights and sentencing regimes), the UN Human Rights Commission and the Committee Against Torture (sentencing regimes and incarceration practices) registering disapproval

Instead, a host of local prison guards, undertakers, drivers, hospital staff, and other witnesses were crossexamined to establish that civilians had indeed been incarcerated, tortured, killed, or died while in custody and that they had been disposed of at Bukit Dunbar. Why, then, was the mass grave at Bukit Dunbar excavated? In retrospect, it is clear that the exhumation was not so much concerned with the minutiae of the crimes
