The inner world of the Norwegian prisons

Norwegian prisons have already become legendary because of conditions for detainees, which seem to be too good and human. The Norwegian authorities have recently created facilities for detainees. Let’s see, however, why the Norwegian prisons are so discussed.

Detainees here re-educate more effectively than in other states, and the percentage of repetition of crimes after release is much lower. This is 20 percent, while in the US – 60 percent.

    Woah that prison is nicer than my own room LOL. I believe that everyone deserves a second chance so it is great that they encourage them to cultivate their talents but at the same time it looks more like a luxury home than a prison!

    I’m not really sure how to respond to these photos given what being in prison actually means.
    That said, the living quarters and quality of life depicted, say something about why so many countries remain in the dark ages of providing care for their citizenry.

    I think there is a lot to learn from it, yes it may look luxurious but the point is they still have very limited freedom and you cant change someone by treating them bad . most of them come from abuse anyways and people deserve not only a 2nd chance but also a learn different chance . thumbs up Norway

    I think any offender with that is going to be released back into publish should be treated with dignity. I think that a lot of reconditioning could be done in these institutions that would create a better community and environment for all.

    Wow! These prison amenities look better than what I had in my university dorm rooms. At least I can rest easy in knowing that if I ever get locked up in Norway I’ll be well accommodated.

    Sometimes I feel that the idea of a prison being more a luxury home is a little bit risky. What about poor people, are they motivated to make bad decisions and end up in jail just so they can live a better life?

      Your point of view is good. But in Norway the unemployment rate is 4%.

    Wow those are so much nicer than the ones in the US. Though there is debate about how nice they should be I am glad to see there is more laid backness to this one.

    I didn’t know that the prison had a nice bedroom too? I can’t believe that they had a comfortable area unlike to the street people who’s innocent.
