Prisoners are a uniquely vulnerable social group and protecting them from oppressive states has given rise to a complex web of standards generated by a variety of international mechanisms and processes. Protecting Prisoners examines the most detailed and far-reaching set of custodial standards yet devised-those of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT)--and relates them to those of other European and United Nations bodies. The book also examines the reaction of selected Council of Europe member states--Belgium, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Turkey, and the United Kingdom--to the application of those standards in CPT reports. This dual perspective provides a critical insight into the degree to which the development of international human rights law is having a practical impact on the situation of prisoners.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... provides a critical insight into the degree to which the development of international human rights law is having a practical impact on the situation of prisoners. * Organization Studies 22 April 2001 *
Preventing Torture is an excellent series of papers ... expertly collected and interrelated, dealing with the specific problem of the mistreatment of prisoners and others held in detention. ... Not only a useful supplement to existing texts, but also an invaluable addition to the ongoing debate surrounding the mistreatment of all classes of prisoners. * Steve Foster, British Journal of Criminology *
The two volumes represent the crowning achievement of a decade of exemplary practically-oriented scholarship by Professors Morgan and Evans... Protecting Prisoners is a well thought through and coherent volume. * Interights *
