Ex-prisoners' views on imprisonment and re-entry
MetadataShow full item record
In the past 15 years much research has been conducted on the prison system in South Africa focusing on governance, law reform and human rights. It is, however, of particular concern that the voices of prisoners and ex-prisoners had not been heard in the current discourse. This marginalisation of prisoners’ views is in all likelihood symptomatic of their marginalisation in broader society. This research project gathered information from ex-prisoners about their experiences during and after imprisonment.
