Dr Skarbek will be delivering a paper entitled ‘Covenants Without the Sword? Comparing Prison Self-Governance Globally’ based on his research into how inmates create self-governance institutions to promote economic and social interactions behind bars.

'The Oxford Seminar for the Study of Violence' examine the various forms, uses, and dynamics of violence in both the domestic sphere, and situations of armed conflict. The series will be multi-disciplinary and is launching initially with a fortnightly schedule; planned to alternate between academic and post-graduate papers.
