People in this story

The University of California, Irvine received a $2.7 million gift by Arnold Ventures to conduct the most comprehensive study to date into the sources and consequences of prison violence in seven states. Findings from the three-year, multi-strategy investigation will be used to create an evidence-based framework for reducing and preventing incidents of violence.

Northeastern’s Criminology and Criminal Justice Professor Natasha Frost will be part of the research team that includes internationally recognized correctional experts and a partnership with seven state prison systems. Their research will identify the drivers of victimization and violence among incarcerated individuals and inform targeted interventions that can be implemented throughout the United States.
