The focuse of my Sylff Research Abroad award was to analyse specific characteristics of California correctional facilities. I spent significant time at the University of California, San Diego to collect data related with history and development of prisons in the state of California and involvement of private and civil sector in the operation of prison establishments. In addition to it, I had the opportunity to meet with professionals of the field to get more in-depth practical understanding of the state of prisons in California. I took interviews from a lawyer of the California Innocent Project and a warden of the only state correctional facility in San Diego.
