The goal of the Prisons area is to monitor the Catalan prisons and intervene in the event of violations of human rights in their facilities. We want to promote public debate on the need for structural changes in the criminal justice system, creating a penal sanction system alternative to the denial of freedoms.
Lines of work
- Visit the prison facilities to effectively monitor them in coordination with other organisations of human rights protection.
- Follow up cases managed by SAIDAVI related to people in prisons.
- Organise social and political advocacy campaigns to raise awareness of actual conditions in prison facilities.
- Political advocacy to promote respect for prisoners’ fundamental human rights.
