Archbishop of Canterbury on “The Prisoner as Citizen”

leave a comment »

Rowan Williams weighs in on Britain’s debate about inmate voting rights:

If we lose sight of the notion of the prisoner as citizen, any number of things follow from that, and indeed are following from that. … Thus issues around restoration, around responsibility, around developing concepts of empathy and mutuality are all part of what seems to me to be a reasonable working out of what it is to regard the prisoner as a citizen.
