What is the secret behind the success of one of the most humane prisons in the world?
The authors aim to demonstrate how Norway has developed one of the most compassionate correctional systems in the world, if not the most humane. The book delves into the practical implications of this system, highlighting what is working well and what could be improved. By sharing inspiring interviews and stories from policymakers, prison officers, and even some inmates, the authors provide a fresh and original perspective on the subject. Their intention is to offer an accessible and engaging account of the Norwegian approach to corrections, and to promote a better understanding of what makes it so successful.
