Coalition for fighting violence in prison

Fast facts

About the project

Twenty years ago, on 26 October 2000, the European Court of Human Rights solemnly affirmed, in a judgment in the case of Kudla v. Poland, the right of every prisoner to conditions of detention consistent with respect for human dignity. Former detainees, human rights defenders and academics joined together to report on the achievements of this case law and its effects in the daily life in prisons in Europe. Through a multimedia event to be released in November 2020 until June 2021, they will give the floor to actors of the prison field across Europe to analyze the stakes of the recognition of prisoners' rights.
