Rescaled Norway

In recent years, several small and local low-security prisons have been closed in Norway.
They have been replaced with larger high-security prisons, located in forest and industrial areas.

What are the consequences of such a development? And is this what the future correctional service should look like?

Wayback is a user and interest organization – working with and for our members.
After many years of experience in supporting convicts in the transition between prison and society, we know what it takes for this to be possible for the individual. We know where the shoe presses.
We therefore wish to take a closer look at the developments we have seen in recent years and have in this connection entered into a collaboration with the European interest organization RESCALED. Through interdisciplinary cooperation at national and international level, we want to contribute to investment in places of imprisonment that can actually improve the return. And – which makes it easier to return to society after completing the sentence. Smaller and adapted prison places, where prison and communities can be a resource for each other.
The collaboration is mainly about knowledge development and knowledge sharing. In the long term, we want this to lead to innovation and new thinking at the system level.
