2022 is going to be a year full of content for Prison Insider. More than 10 projects are in the pipeline. Two new country profiles, an artistic investigation on prison scars, new thematic papers, the publication of a book, new testimonials and much more. We need you to make it happen!
Prison Insider publishes country profiles based on factual, sourced and up-to-date information. These profiles give an overview of criminal policy, their implementation and prevailing practices.
Information on prisons in Congo is few and far between and media coverage is almost non-existent, even though it is the country with the highest prison overcrowding in the world. In 2022, Prison Insider will involve local associations and people closely linked to the Congolese prison system to shed light on the prison conditions in the country.
Prison Insider offers the chance to compare the prison systems in different countries to question their practices. Our thematic papers focus on the specific aspects of prisoners’ daily lives.
The social ties of prisoners are durably affected by their time in detention. Prison Insider strives to put words and voices on the broken links and, conversely, on the practices that can help to heal and to allow individuals to reconnect.
The Prison Life Index is designed to be the first composite index for assessing state prison policies, from rule-making to implementation. The index is made from the main legal instruments on imprisonment.
First-hand reports: testimonials convey voices that are often silenced. Prison Insider welcomes stories of resistance and provides a venue for prisoners and loved ones to express their sadness and share their joys.
InsideOutside promises a universal and timeless telling of the deprivation of freedom. It came from the particular belief that prisoners, regardless of where they are incarcerated, the length of their sentence, gender, age, and the physical conditions of their prison environment, share the same experience: the impairment of their senses through the prolonged deprivation of freedom. A book will bring together these testimonials and will be published at the end of 2022.
