Project description

European law and policy for prison disciplinary hearings increasingly recognises that such procedures should be regarded as akin to criminal trials. This project will analyse whether prison disciplinary hearings actually comply with European norms by focusing on the law, policy and practice in three EU member states. It will also analyse what additional measures may be required.
