To start with you can discuss the purpose of prison. In this regard you have an objective criterion by which you can assess whether it does or not. It can then go on to include the topics highlighted i.e. the need for prison reform to better meet its purpose (or perhaps even change its aims for the benefit of society), the need for mental health support and social care reform, a look at crime amongst children and whether incarceration is the best means to address this and drug reform, seeing that substance misuse is such a big problem for those who enter into prison as well as for those within prison itself. I would like the paper to emphasise on the negative effects of prison and how I believe that it does more harm than good.
