The purpose of this article is to present an overview of inmates’ treatment in Slovenia. After the introduction a brief discussion of terms is presented. The overview then takes a historical focus followed by a more detailed description of current treatment in Slovenia.
The paper is based on a literature review and on a conducted interview.
Slovenian penal institutions are dominated by compromise between treatment and punishment policy. The treatment, however, can be implemented only to the degree that is permitted by the security measurements in the penal institution. Therefore, Slovenia was and still is confronted with a question: what kind of punishment and inmates’ treatment practice would be most effective?
The lack of literature on inmates’ treatment in Slovenia published in recent years was the main issue the authors have to deal with. Therefore the interview with treatment personnel was conducted.
Taking into account a chronological overview of inmates’ treatment in Slovenia, the paper reflects the inmates’ treatment in Slovenian society today.
This paper attempts to provide a broad overview of Slovenian treatment of inmates. It may be important to non-academic policy makers, students as to academics interested in gaining some knowledge about Slovenia’s past and present prison treatment policies.Ključne besede: treatment, rehabilitation, resocialization, inmates, prison, Slovenia
