Resumen

SALINERO ECHEVERRIA, Sebastián. ¿Why is criminal population increasing in Chile?: a longitudinal criminology study. Ius et Praxis [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 113-150. ISSN 0718-0012.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-00122012000100005.

In this paper the author analyzes the factors and causes of the increase in prison population in Chile between 2000 and 2009. It is stated that the factors that cause a rise in prison population are attributable to an increased inflow of people into the criminal system, to a longer incarceration of prisoners, and, to a lack of real mechanisms of prison reduction. In turn, the causes that are likely to originate these factors are analyzed, such as the Criminal Procedure Reform and everything it brought from the perspective of a new system of criminal justice, the punitive criminal justice that favor incarceration, and a marked reduction in legal benefits known as alternatives to prison.
