Mission statement

In the area of prisons we have the objective of monitoring the Penitentiary Centers of Catalonia and intervene in case of human rights’ violation. Likewise, we want to promote public debate on the need to generate structural changes in the penal system, incorporating a system of alternative penalties to deprivation of liberty.


Lines of action

  • Visits to prisons to carry out effective monitoring in coordination with other human
    rights protection organizations.
  • Follow-up of cases brought from SAIDAVI related to people at Catalan prisons.
  • Carrying out political and social advocacy campaigns on the reality of prisons.
