In Ireland, prison litigation is becoming increasingly common. Prison numbers are at an all-time high and conditions in many Irish prisons have been criticized by international and domestic human rights bodies, such as the Irish Penal Reform Trust and the Inspector of Prisons, who have voiced concern about the lack of accountability for decisions taken by prison administrators on issues such as discipline, transfers, and release. The rights of prisoners are a key focus of the book. These rights are examined in relation to prison conditions, contact with the outside world, discipline, remission, transfer, and release. The book analyzes practical issues that Ireland's prison law practitioners are likely to come up against, such as causes of action, evidential difficulties, and time limits. It sets out the position of particular groups, including women, children, foreign prisoners, and those from an ethnic minority background. It identifies areas in which the treatment of prisoners gives rise to concerns under the country's Constitution or the European Convention on Human Rights. Contents include: the legal framework governing Irish prisons * prison conditions and the law * contact with the outside world * remission, transfer, and release * discipline * accountability for deaths * incidents giving rise to serious harm * particular groups in the prison population * practical issues for prison law practitioners.

Few empirical studies have focused on women in prison. In the last few years, though, a number of studies have demonstrated that there are fundamental differences between male and female prisoners in an ever-changing penal system. Consequently, there has been a need for more comprehensive studies of female offenders for three primary reasons: (1) imperative research gaps remain to be bridged; (2) the female prison experience is not constant; and (3) prison rates for female offenders, especially minority offenders, have increased considerably in the last few years. A central goal of this book, then, is to provide a balance to the existing literature and research on female prisoners in the United States and, to an extent, abroad, focusing primarily on female offenders and using data gathered from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The book utilizes a comprehensive investigative approach by equating the experience of female offenders by the totality of circumstances within an historical, institutional, political, and ideological context. The critical objective is to offer an inclusive analysis of the things that are considered by female inmates to be the most significant before, during, and after their incarceration, as a way of better understanding the reasons that lead to their first incarceration as well as subsequent incarcerations. By reading this book, the reader will have a greater understanding of the many challenges facing female inmates, as well as the relationship between inmates, correctional officers and, by extension, society in general. Also provided is a series of policy recommendations throughout the book, particularly in the concluding chapter and epilogue.
