Basic Principles of Religion in Prison

This document has been prepared by the International Commission of Catholic Prison Pastoral Care, in cooperation with the International Prison Chaplains Association, the International Corrections and Prisons Association, and Penal Reform International.  It has been reviewed by prison managers as well as prison pastoral workers from the Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant Christian, and Roman Catholic faiths. Contributions have also been received from the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief and two members of the European Committee for Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. It is hoped these basic principles will serve as the basis for recommendations by the United Nations Congress of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.
