Introduction

This country profile presents the figures currently available and a selection of press articles. We are always looking to improve our content.

Do you have photos? Useful contacts in the country? A person who would want to give his testimony? A person who has expertise in a particular field?

See elsewhere: comparing prison systems between countries allows similarities and differences to emerge. This space helps understand what happens in other countries and no longer turn our gaze.

Prison Insider is a collaborative website, every contribution builds new information for us all.
