A Human Rights Approach to Prison Management: Handbook for Prison Staff
A practical handbook which describes the internationally agreed standards on the use of imprisonment and conditions of detention, and which details guidance for prison staff as to their implementation. It provides a model for good prison management which can be applied in every prison system in the world.
Guidance Notes on Prison Reform
The purpose of the Guidance Notes is to provide to potential funders and others interested in penal reform a set of basic documents that can be used to design and structure prison reform activities in any environment or culture. All the Guidance Notes are set within the international human rights framework; apply in a variety of cultural and political environments; propose solutions that are likely to be sustainable in different socio-economic situations and do not involve a significant increase in resources; and take into account the realities of prison management.
International Prison News Digest
The International Prison News Digest is produced bi-monthly and contains a selection of news items from around the world on prison and the use of imprisonment.
