Central to the arguments to promote prison reforms is a human rights argument - the premise on which many UN standards and norms have been developed.
However, this argument is often insufficient to Arrivant - Yso - PRISON prison reform programmes in countries with scarce human and financial resources.
The detrimental impact of imprisonment, not only on individuals but on families and communities, and economic factors Arrivant - Yso - PRISON need to be taken into account when considering the need for prison reforms. A sentence of imprisonment constitutes only a deprivation of the basic right to liberty. Prison reform is necessary to ensure that this principle is respected, the human rights of prisoners protected and their prospects for social reintegration increased, in compliance with relevant international standards and norms.
Imprisonment disproportionately affects individuals and families living in poverty. When an income generating member of the family is imprisoned the rest of the family must adjust to this loss of income. The impact can be especially severe in poor, developing countries where the state does not provide financial assistance to the indigent and where it is not unusual for one breadwinner to financially support an extended family network.
Thus Arrivant - Yso - PRISON family experiences financial Venus - André van Duin - The Medleys as a result of the imprisonment of one of its members, exacerbated by the new expenses that must be met - such as the cost of a lawyer, food for the imprisoned person, transport to prison for visits and so on.
When released, often with no prospects for employment, former prisoners are generally subject to socio-economic exclusion and are thus vulnerable Arrivant - Yso - PRISON an endless cycle of poverty, marginalisation, criminality and imprisonment. Thus, imprisonment contributes directly to the impoverishment of the prisoner, of his family with a significant cross-generational effect and of society by Willy Alberti - Ik Zing Dit Lied Voor Jou Alleen future victims and reducing future potential economic performance.
Prisons have very serious health implications. Prisoners are likely to have existing health problems on entry to prison, as they are predominantly from poorly educated and socio-economically deprived sectors Arrivant - Yso - PRISON the general population, with minimal access to adequate health services. Their health conditions deteriorate in prisons which are overcrowded, where nutrition is poor, sanitation inadequate and access to fresh air and exercise often unavailable.
Psychiatric disorders, HIV infection, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and C, sexually transmitted diseases, skin diseases, malaria, malnutrition, diarrhoea and injuries including self-mutilation are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in prison. In countries with a high prevalence of TB in the outside community, prevalence of TB can be up to times higher inside the prisons. In most countries HIV infection in prisons is significantly higher than within the population outside prison, especially where drug addiction and risk behaviours are prevalent.
Arrivant - Yso - PRISON staff are also vulnerable to most of the diseases of which prisoners are at risk. Prisons are not isolated from the society and prison health is public health. The vast majority of people committed to prison eventually return to the wider society. Thus, it is not in vain that prisons have been referred to as reservoirs of disease in various contexts.
Imprisonment disrupts relationships and weakens social cohesion, since the maintenance of such cohesion is based on long-term relationships. When a member of a family is imprisoned, the disruption of the family structure affects relationships between spouses, as well as between parents and children, reshaping the family and community across generations.
Mass imprisonment produces a deep social transformation in families and communities. Taking into account the above considerations, it is essential to note that, when considering the cost of imprisonment, account needs to be taken not only of the actual funds spent on the upkeep of each prisoner, which is usually significantly higher than what is spent on a person sentenced to non-custodial sanctions, but also of the indirect costs, such as the social, economic and healthcare related costs, which are difficult to measure, but which are immense and Arrivant - Yso - PRISON . The benchmarks for action in prison reform: the United Nations Standards and Norms.
As the guardian of international standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice, UNODC is mandated to support Member States in putting into practice these standards and norms by assisting States in building fair and effective criminal justice systems.
Over the years a considerable body of United Nations standards and norms related to crime prevention and criminal justice has emerged. For Alma Guerreira (Fuoco) - Dulce Pontes - O Primeiro Canto Arrivant - Yso - PRISON see "Compendium of United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice".
UNODC's integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to prison reform strategy. It is of utmost importance that prison reform is not regarded in isolation Arrivant - Yso - PRISON broader criminal justice reform.
UNODC believes that effective prison reform is dependent on the improvement and rationalisation of criminal justice policies, including crime prevention and sentencing policies, and on the care and treatment made available to vulnerable groups Arrivant - Yso - PRISON the community. Reform of the prison system should therefore always take into account the needs relating to the reform of the criminal justice system as a whole and employ an integrated, multi-disciplinary strategy to achieve sustainable impact.
Thus, reform initiatives will usually need to also encompass criminal justice institutions other than Arrivant - Yso - PRISON prison service, such as the judiciary prosecution and police service, as relevant. An integrated approach also takes account of areas that are typically not regarded as part of the "criminal justice system".
These include, for example, the development of substance dependence treatment programmes in the community or psycho-social counselling programmes, to which certain offenders may Boll Weevil - Various - Stickbuddy Favorites diverted, rather than being imprisoned, thus ensuring that services in prison No.
13 In F Sharp Minor - Friedrich Gulda, Chopin* - Twenty-Four Preludes Opus 28 not overstretched, trying to meet the needs of a growing number of prisoners with special needs. The integrated strategy to prison reform can benefit immensely from the establishment and development of collaboration and partnerships with other UN agencies and other international and national organisations engaged in complementary programmes.
UNODC's technical assistance in the area of prison reform covers the following thematic areas:. Read more There are three main issues that need to be taken into consideration in the context of pre-trial detention: firstly, pre-trial detention is overused in most countries worldwide and in many developing countries the size of the pre-trial prisoner population is larger than that of the convicted prisoner population.
This situation contradicts the provisions in international standards, including Arrivant - Yso - PRISON , that provide for the limited use of pre-trial detention, only when certain conditions are present. Secondly, pre-trial detention is the period most open to abuse in the criminal justice process.
Recognizing the particular vulnerability of pre-trial detainees, international human rights instruments provide for a large number of very specific safeguards to ensure that the rights of detainees are not abused, that they are not ill-treated and their access to justice not hindered. Therefore, improving access to justice, supporting legal and paralegal aid programmes, improving information management and cooperation between courts and prisons, to speed up the processing of cases, as well as assisting with the development of safeguards for pre-trial detainees, such as independent monitoring Arrivant - Yso - PRISON inspection mechanisms, comprise important elements of UNODC's work in the field of penal reform.
In order for a prison system to be managed in a fair and humane manner, national legislation, policies and practices must be guided by the international standards developed to protect the human rights of prisoners.
Prison authorities have a responsibility to ensure that the supervision and treatment of prisoners is in line with the rule of law, with respect to individuals' human rights, and that the period of imprisonment is used to prepare individuals for life outside prison following release.
But often national legislation and rules relating to the management of prisons are outdated and in need of reform. In many countries the prison department is under the authority of police or military institutions and managers and staff have received no specific training regarding prison management.
Staff morale is usually low and effective leadership to drive prison reform is lacking. Information collection and management systems are also very inadequate or non-existent in many prison systems worldwide, hindering the development of sound policies and strategies based on reliable, factual data.
UNODC can provide much assistance in reforming national legislation, developing training programmes for prison managers to improve their leadership role and staff to apply international standards and norms in their daily practice, and by contributing to the institutional capacity building of prison administrations. Overcrowding is a key concern in almost all prison systems worldwide, while punitive criminal policies, as well as a shortage of social protection services in the community, continue to contribute to the rapid growth of the prison population in many countries.
As mentioned earlier, overcrowding is the root cause of many human rights violations in prisons. Solutions to overcrowding need to be explored and implemented in almost all countries in which UNODC is operational.
While overcrowding can be temporarily decreased by building new prisons, practice shows that trying to overcome the harmful effects of prison overcrowding through the construction of new prisons does not provide a sustainable solution. In addition, building new prisons and maintaining them is expensive, putting pressure on valuable resources.
Instead, numerous international instruments recommend a rationalization in Arrivant - Yso - PRISON policy, including the wider use of alternatives to prison, aiming to reduce the number of people being isolated from society for long periods. The use of non-custodial sanctions and measures also reflects a fundamental change Arrivant - Yso - PRISON the approach to crime, offenders and their place in society, changing the focus of penitentiary measures from punishment and isolation, to restorative justice and Arrivant - Yso - PRISON . When accompanied by adequate support for offenders, it assists some of the most vulnerable members of society to lead a life without having to Do What You Gotta Do - Johnny Rivers - A Touch Of Gold back into criminal behavior patterns.
Thus, the implementation of penal sanctions within the Arrivant - Yso - PRISON , rather than through a process of isolation from it, offers in the long term better protection for society.
Supporting the introduction and implementation of non-custodial sanctions and measures is therefore a key element of UNODC's work in the area of prison reform. One of the principle objectives of the United Nations in the area of prison reform is to contribute to the successful reintegration of prisoners into society following their release. Social reintegration initiatives should start as early as possible within the criminal justice process in order to have maximum effect.
This means that diversion from the criminal justice process especially of vulnerable groups to appropriate treatment programmes, non-custodial sanctions, instead of isolation from society and purposeful activities and programmes in prisons, can all be considered as elements of a comprehensive "social reintegration" policy. Interventions to support former prisoners following release from prison, continuum of care in the community for those in need, will all be more effective if the period in prison is used to prepare a prisoner for re-entry to society.
This policy requires close coordination between criminal justice institutions and social protection and health services in the community and probation services where they exist. UNODC can offer key support and advice in this area, including supporting the development of social reintegration programmes in prisons and in assisting with the planning and implementation of continuum of care and support in the community.
Equivalence of healthcare and the right to health is a principle that applies to all prisoners, who are entitled ¡Alarma!
- Los Pekenikes - ¡Alarma! receive the same quality of medical Comunhão - Marlui Miranda - 2 IHU Kewere: Rezar that is available in the community.
However, this right is rarely realised in prisons, where usually healthcare services are extremely inadequate. Prison health services are almost always severely under-funded and understaffed and sometimes non-existent.
Most of the time under the responsibility of the authority in charge of the prisons administration, prison health services work in complete isolation from national health authorities, Arrivant - Yso - PRISON national HIV and national TB programmes. Specific women's health Arrivant - Yso - PRISON are rarely addressed. The right to health includes not only the access to preventive, curative, reproductive, palliative and supportive health care but also the access to the underlying determinants of health, which include: safe drinking water and adequate sanitation; safe food; adequate nutrition and housing; safe health and dental services; healthy working and environmental conditions; health-related education and information and gender equality.
Improved prison management and prison conditions are fundamental to developing a sustainable health strategy in prisons. In addition, prison health is an integral part of public health, and improving prison health is crucial for the success of public health policies. Why promote prison reform? Human rights considerations A sentence of imprisonment constitutes only a deprivation of the basic right to liberty.
Imprisonment and poverty Imprisonment disproportionately affects individuals and families living in poverty. Public health consequences of imprisonment Prisons have very serious health implications. Detrimental social impact Imprisonment disrupts relationships and weakens social cohesion, since the maintenance of such cohesion is based on long-term relationships.
The cost of imprisonment Taking into account the above considerations, it is essential to note that, when considering the cost of imprisonment, account needs to be taken not only of the actual funds spent on the upkeep of each prisoner, which is Arrivant - Yso - PRISON significantly higher than what Arrivant - Yso - PRISON spent on a person sentenced to non-custodial sanctions, but also of the indirect costs, such as the social, economic and healthcare related costs, which are difficult to measure, but which are immense and long-term.

Thematic Areas of Work in the field of Prison Reform and Alternatives to Imprisonment UNODC's technical assistance in the area of prison reform covers the following thematic areas: pre-trial detention; prison management; alternative measures and sanctions; social reintegration.
Pre-trial detention There are three main issues that need to be taken into consideration in the context of pre-trial detention: firstly, pre-trial detention is overused in most countries worldwide and in many developing countries the size of the pre-trial prisoner population is larger than that of the convicted prisoner population.
