Abstract

In 2016, the Chief Inspector of Prisons reported that the prison service was in crisis and that ‘our prisons have become unacceptably violent and dangerous places’. In this year’s HMIP report he argues that ‘the situation has not improved; in fact, it has become worse’. It is clear that prisons in England and Wales are in chaos. A record number of people are dying, violence is at an all-time high and the living conditions for those in prison are far below acceptable standards. Moreover, there is significant evidence that many of the negative outcomes and deteriorating conditions of prison life are even worse for Black, Asian and ethnic minority (BME) prisoners.
