Abstract

With the end of the first 100 days of the Biden Administration, what progress has been made in reforming America’s criminal justice policy? As part of our Building Back Better series, Nicola Lacey writes that President Biden is moving to fulfil his election campaign promises with a range of criminal justice reforms including drug sentencing reform, robust gun controls, reforming juvenile justice, tackling violence against women, humanizing prison conditions, and eliminating cash bail. And while some of Biden’s reform agenda may be blocked by Congress, pandemic recovery measures will be able to provide the basis for policy initiatives geared towards a broad, long-term approach to social crime prevention.
