Juvenile Delinquency and India
Ever since the dawn of human civilization, crime has always been one of the major prevailing problems. Very hardly any society can be thought about without besetting the problem. Human beings inherently by nature are fighting animals; to think about a crimeless society thus is nothing but a mere myth. Adolphe Quetelet, the eminent Belgian…Continue

In Nigeria, democracy has been restored for over a decade ago, which no doubt, opened so much hopes and expectations by the people. For instance, it is assumed that with democracy, people would be free to choose their leaders and representatives and hold them accountable for the overall objective of fast tracking development and improving the general living conditions of the masses. This expectation is not misplaced considering that Nigeria has…

It’s an optimistic headline: “Prison Rape: Obama’s Program to Stop It”. It leads into a comprehensive New York Review of Books article on three recently released Federal government publications. Two of these documents examine sexual abuse in the nation’s detention centers while the other outlines the Department of Justice’s regulations for eliminating prison rape. All three aim to address the appalling number of people—young and old, female and male, citizen and those awaiting…Continue

In Hungary there are several education groups in prisons. At the top of an education group an educator is sitting, he is a member of the staff and he does mainly social work in very unique sense. The educator is responsible for all administrative questions which rely on the prisoner. If an inmate wants to know how much money he has on his account, he has to write an application to the educator:
“Dear Ms/Mr Educator!
Please be so kind to inform me how much money I have on my…Continue

There is only one unit for the women placed in maximum security regime in Hungary. If a severe problem occurs to these inmates there is no other place in the country to place them. For instance if they attack a prison officer violently in the prison, on the next day they have to stay in the same prison with the same staff. Or if they have a fight with other inmates, they remain also in the unit on the next day. This is sad. The only exclusion is to transfer these ladies to the psychiatry,…Continue

I am conducting a piece of research exploring attitudes to mentally disordered offenders with the aim of beginning to look at how we can effect those attitudes by awareness raising and education.
By investigating how the publics' attitudes to MD offenders can be changed, it is hoped that understanding of the issues facing these types of offenders will increase and lead to a reduction in fear and stereotyping. It is important that this happens so that there can be an…Continue
