Prison Insider

Prison Insider is an information platform on prisons in the world. Its objective is to inform, compare and share testimonial on conditions of detention, with regard to fundamental rights.
The platform collects, verifies and synthesizes existing data. It produces knowledge and makes it accessible to the greatest number of people - in accessible language and in English, French and Spanish. All our information is made public via our website, with dissemination via newsletters and social media. Prison Insider also facilitates a diversified network of actors involved throughout the world.
Its purpose is to make information available for action.

While prison environments are often opaque, Prison Insider offers rigorous, independent and accessible information about detention conditions.

Bernard Bolze, founder of the International Observatory on Prisons (OIP), is behind the creation of Prison Insider.
