Combining his professional practice as a journalist and his commitment to social responsibility, Bernard Bolze, in 1990, set up the International Observatory on Prisons. From that point on, he started to focus on the issue of detention by organising campaigns and public events. In 2008 he joined the team at the office of the Controller-General for Places of Deprivation of Liberty (the French National Preventive Mechanism) for several years. He was also the initiator of publications on prisons, among which was the first edition of the Guide du prisonnier (published by Editions de l’Atelier, 1995) and Prisons de Lyon, une histoire manifeste (published by LieuxDits Editions, 2013). In the spring of 2014, Bernard Bolze, 63, initiated the Prison Insider project.
