Caning, Context and Class: Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Public Safety - FrameWorks Institute 2011

This report is part of a larger, multi-method project that seeks to develop more effective ways to communicate about the challenges facing America’s criminal justice system and to provide justice reform advocates with specific recommendations for reframing the issue of public safety. This particular report lays the groundwork for this larger reframing effort by comparing expert discourse on the topic with the ways that average Americans think and talk about public safety. Data from interviews with both groups are compared to locate and examine gaps in understanding surrounding issues pertaining to public safety. In addition to presenting these gaps, this report outlines their implications for communications.
