Volume 20, Number 2 is dedicated to the life and contributions of Liz Elliott, who was an active member of the JPP Editorial Board in the formative years of the Journal, and a passionate advocate for prisoners' rights, restorative and social justice. The general section includes a number of articles that highlight the socio-politics and experiences of incarceration in the United States. It also includes two short special sections - one based on the discussions arising from the June 2010 13th International Conference on Penal Abolition (ICOPA) in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and one on 'summit detention' and the mass arrests that occurred during the June 2010 G-20 protests in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
