“Is there a role for prisons in modern Wales?”
Dr Robert Jones says that the prison population of Wales has risen by 76% over the last decade. And the rate of imprisonment in Wales is the highest in Western Europe.

Welsh prisons are stretched to capacity, reoffending rates are on the rise, and there is no provision at all for Welsh female prisoners. Could Wales abolish prisons altogether and create a new justice system based around the principles of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act?
