Mapping Solitary Confinement: Key Findings Report

To help explore how solitary confinement is used in different countries around the world, we designed a questionnaire and distributed it to academics, National Preventive Mechanisms (NPMs) and other oversight bodies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and prison authorities across the globe.

This report presents key findings from 57 ‘country reports’ from 42 jurisdictions, submitted by in-country experts.

All country reports are available here.

Work on the report was kindly supported by the Association for the Prevention of Torture
