Claudio Tucci Junior, Fabiola Andrea Chofard Adami

Abstract


The present study deals with the privatization of prisons in an attempt to solve the inefficient Brazilian penitentiary system, a situation that is very worrying, since it presents several problems such as overcrowding, lack of health care, rebellion, escape, corruption, Inefficiency in rehabilitation, institutionalization of organized crime, among others, making impossible the adequate return of the victim to social interaction. Aiming at such changes, privatization of prisons emerges as a solution and is configured as an alternative to state control that brings the excessive and ineffective punishment of incarceration. These changes are justified by the ideas of criminal abolitionism and control societies, as well as criticism of the Criminal Law itself, with an incentive to apply alternative penalties and in concomitance with the management of public affairs in partnership with the private initiative, in the sense of Propose a possible solution to the serious problems currently encountered. From the analysis of the purpose of custodial sentences, liberalism and resocialization, from the point of view of critical criminology, this study has the scope of problematizing the abolitionist tendencies by proposing a discussion to suggest changes in the current Brazilian penitentiary criminal policy and in the Model of prison management, taking into account the very purpose of the sentence in the scope of Criminal Law.

Keywords: Public-private partnership; Criminal and penitentiary policy; Control society; Criminal law and critical criminology.
