Abstract

This week the government revealed plans to create separate isolation units for Islamist extremists in high-security prisons. Here, Imran Awan argues that to tackle prison radicalisation we must adopt a broader approach that addresses the rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders back into society. This will require not just tackling structural issues within prisons but also increasing the role that religion, and in particular Muslim chaplains, can play in this rehabilitation process.
