Global Prison Trends is Penal Reform International’s annual flagship series. Published every year since 2015, the series identifies topical developments and challenges in criminal justice and prison policy and practice. Each report also provides 25 recommendations for states to review and improve their penal systems
Global Prison Trends contributes to the monitoring of crime trends and operations of criminal justice systems. This was identified as key to measuring the ‘progress in strengthening the rule of law and advancing towards sustainable development’ in the UN Secretary General Report, State of Crime and Criminal Justice Worldwide, in January 2015.
