International Prison News Digest Issue 39

12 Jul 2017

ICPR has produced the thirty ninth issue of the International Prison News Digest, a selection of news items from around the world on prison and the use of imprisonment. The Digest is produced bi-monthly and this issue covers the period from 1 May to 30 June 2017.

In this and future editions of the Digest, we are grouping news items regionally, rather than thematically.

We aim in the Digest to cover all regions of the world and include new developments in policy and practice, as well as information from official and intergovernmental bodies.

By clicking on the hyperlinks, you can access the news articles in their original form.

Content is sourced solely from English language news stories. Readers wishing to notify us of important news items in other languages are welcome to send us articles with a short summary of key content and we will consider them for inclusion in the next edition.

Please note that ICPR is not responsible for the accuracy of external content.
