Dissertation: The Great Experiment: California's Prison Realignment and the Legal Reform of Mass Incarceration
Anjuli's dissertation, funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Justice, blends group-based trajectory modeling and institutional ethnographic methods to analyze how historical imprisonment trajectories shape the potential for decarceration at the local level. She uses the 2011 “realignment” of California’s unconstitutionally overcrowded prison system as an empirical window into the diffusion of law and policy innovations at lower levels of government and their translation into local organizational and professional practices.
