Prof. Mushlin submits testimony to Senate Judiciary Subcommittee

Professor Michael Mushlin, an expert in prison reform, along with his colleague, Martin Horn, the former New York City Commissioner of Correction and Probation, submitted written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights.

Convened on February 25, 2014, the Subcommittee held a hearing entitled, “Reassessing Solitary Confinement II: The Human Rights, Fiscal, and Public Safety Consequences,” to examine the use of solitary confinement in federal, state, and local prisons. The US holds more prisoners in solitary confinement than any other democratic nation, a topic that Professor Mushlin has explored in his scholarship.
