Understanding and Replicating Washington State's Segregation Reduction Programs

This is a comprehensive research project to analyze the reduction in the use of segregation (“restricted housing”) over time throughout the Washington Department of Corrections (DOC). The research will focus on three key areas of analysis, critical to solitary reform, replication of this reform, and development of viable alternative systems: (1) analysis of technical, quantitative outcomes (e.g. rates of violence, recidivism, grievance filings) of segregation reduction in Washington State, which will provide evidence of system-wide benefits for states that seek to reduce reliance on segregation; (2) analysis of the culture among staff and senior administrators that facilitates systemic and sustainable change; (3) in-depth qualitative interviews with staff and prisoners in segregation, which will contribute to a critical mass of stories that humanize the individuals working in and experiencing solitary and can be leveraged in broader public conversations about why change is important and how it might be achieved.
