Penal Reform International: Global Prison Trends 2015
"This report is designed to describe key
global trends in the use and practice of imprisonment and to identify
some of the pressing challenges facing states that wish to organise
their penitentiary system in accordance with international norms and
standards. Topics include:
Prison populations and rates of imprisonment
Criminal justice, social policy and sustainable development
The report also includes a Special Focus pull-out section on the
impact of the ‘war on drugs’ and its implications for prison management.
Significant international developments, recent research projects and
precedent-setting court decisions are highlighted throughout.
Global Prison Trends is intended to be an annual publication.
Tracking trends and challenges in criminal justice systems will be vital
to designing and assessing measures intended to strengthen the rule of
law as a means to advancing sustainable development."
