A/Professor Carol Lawson, University of Tokyo and A/Professor Stacey Steele, University of Melbourne Law School
Prisons are closed environments that pose severe information asymmetry problems. One regulatory mechanism commonly believed to open prisons up to scrutiny is civil prison oversight, which is seen as protecting prisoners’ human rights and promoting prison reform. Civilian monitors are sent in to visit prisons, interact with prisoners and staff, and report what they find. Inspection mechanisms like this are an example of ‘regulatory state’ governance, where the state relies on private actors to fulfil state functions.
