Å BRYTE LIVET I FENGSEL – OG NÅR LIVET OG FENGSELSLIVET BLIR EN LIVSTRUENDE BYRDE

  • Ynge Hammerlin

Resumé

The issue of suicide is very complex, not least when it happens behind bars. In the article we discuss several contradictions and problematic developmental tendencies within the prison system that can be important in this regard. The prison system as a repressive and
powerful system has to be studied and discussed more thoroughly. The article explores the idea of prisons as institutions for rehabilitation and care, while containing different forms of open and hidden disciplinary measures. The core of our theoretical framework consists in capturing the dialectics between internalization and externalization in the prisoner’s personality, in terms of cultural, collective, societal and individual facets. Ontologically this is very important: Ontology
is the philosophical discipline that explores the question of being. The concept of social practice, interpreted as activity located in different institutions, gives a possibility to focus on the dynamic between traditions for collective activity and the realization of collective
activity through the subject’s actions and living conditions, standard of life and prison conditions. Isolation must cede and we should evaluate and critically study the use of remand in all levels of the judicial system and the prison system.
