what we do

RESCALED national coordinators, partners and ambassadors are working tirelessly to promote small-scale detention on every relevant level. We do so from a deep conviction that is rooted in key values and based on scientific evidence. Although we know that deprivation of liberty might not be avoidable as a mode of punishment, we believe that it should facilitate rather than hinder integration and restoration, and that the human rights and human dignity of those deprived of liberty should be respected at all times. Science tells us prisons cannot realize those values. A growing body of literature demonstrates the harmful effects of imprisonment. Prisoners often face drug abuse, violence, financial, social, and other problems while in prison. High recidivism rates show that people who leave prison are often not prepared to participate in society anew. These convictions are what drive us to give our best every day.

Human rights and human dignity of those deprived of liberty should be respected at all times.

RESCALED Network

The RESCALED Research Network is an independent collaborative network of scholars interested in small-scale detention and prison administrations, initiated by RESCALED. It brings together scholars who conduct research on small-scale detention facilities or are interested in the topic and prison administrations from across Europe. It aims to:

  • stimulate research on small-scale detention through active exchange, collaboration, and applications for funding
  • increase research impact by fostering collaboration between scholars and prison administrations
  • create an evidence-base on the advantages and risks of small-scale detention

People who join the RESCALED Research Network will be invited to meet scholars and administrators at RESCALED events, join panel discussions at conferences, participate in funding applications, and disseminate findings and ‘best practices’ via the RESCALED website and other media.
