2019 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholar Linda Mussell published an article in The Conversation focusing on the ethical implications of Kingston’s prison tourism industry.

Linda Mussell is a doctoral candidate in political studies at Queen's University who is passionate about prison justice and decolonizing research. Her work is focused on breaking cycles of intergenerational incarceration in countries grappling with colonial legacies, specifically Canada, Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.
