Sociology of Development Policy Brief: “Mass Incarceration as a Factor in the US Mortality Disadvantage”


A new Sociology of Development Policy Brief is out! Volume 5, Issue 6 (2020) is: “Mass Incarceration as a Factor in the US Mortality Disadvantage” by Sebastian Daza (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Alberto Palloni (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and Jerrett Jones (University of Wisconsin-Madison). Below is a message from our policy brief editor, Alaka M. Basu:

Here is the sixth of the 2020 series of Policy Briefs from the Sociology of Development section of ASA.  The brief is titled: “Mass Incarceration as a Factor in the US Mortality Disadvantage”, and is by Sebastian Daza, Alberto Palloni and Jerrett Jones (2020, vol 5, no. 6).

As usual, I welcome expressions of interest to contribute. While I am open to any ideas you have, your pitch should ideally include a reference to something you have published on the subject, so that we can assume a base level of peer reviewing of the material. There should also be some clear policy implications arising from the piece.

Thanks again,
