9 – Criminology Matters – Alessandro Corda talks to host Gillian McNaull about his research on criminal records.
In it he examines the multiple collateral consequences experienced by individuals with a criminal record post-conviction. Additionally he outlines the impact of the market and technological forces that have dramatically reshaped the creation and sharing of criminal record data in recent years.
This sees privatised third parties now producing and managing criminal records and their proxies according to corporate aims and processes, creating ‘disordered punishment’ which is difficult for governments and individuals to control.Dr Alessandro Corda is a Lecturer in Law at Queen’s University Belfast.
