Abstract

The concern about prisons turning into “hotbeds of extremism” is currently one of the most pressing security issues that requires an immediate response from policy-makers. While both prison and probation are supposed to be strong partners in de-radicalisation and resettlement, instead of promoting disengagement from violence, these systems frequently facilitate the spread of radical ideology by providing inmates a platform to forge alliances, exchange experience and recruit new followers. In the Middle East, prisons have historically helped galvanising Islamist movements, as evidenced by Camp Bucca’s example in Iraq and its role in the formation of ISIS. This report examines strategies for dealing with Islamism in prisons worldwide focusing on “best practices” and assesses the UK experiment from the point of view of its potential to tackle the spread of radicalisation in prisons.
