Evaluation of the Extra Secure Penitentiary Institution in Vught

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The central question of the research is: At what price are the objectives of the Extra Secure Penitentiary Institution being achieved (no hostage-takings; no escapes)? To answer the central question we formulated the following sub-questions:

  1. What is the history of the development of the institution, what are the specific characteristics of the regime and what are the financial costs of the institution?
  2. What is the legal position of prisoners and what are the judicial ‘costs’ of the regime?
  3. How do members of the prison staff implement the regime in practice and what are the ‘costs’ involved?
  4. How do the prisoners experience their stay and what ‘costs’ do they encounter?
