(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Since February 2010, Belgian prisoners have been detained at the Penitentiary Institution (PI) of Tilburg. They are subjected to a predominantly Belgian regime that is executed by Dutch staff under a Belgian-Dutch board of governors. This report focusses on the factors that influence the lived experiences of the Tilburg detention regime of both prisoners and staff. The following central research question was formulated: what are the (positive, negative or other) experiences with the execution of the Belgian
detention regime in a Dutch institution, what are the consequences of those experiences and what are the possible causes of these experiences?
