Safety and Human Rights in Spanish Prisons
Pp. 240-254 (15)

In this chapter it is analyzed that how issues of internal security and good
order in prisons can enter in conflict with the rights of inmates; in many cases these
security measures are logical constraints, appropriate and proportional, but in others
these should be considered as mere arbitrariness of the Administration without any
basis. Particularly, the actuation of the Spanish Ombudsman is studied.
