Criminal Detention Database

The Criminal Detention Database 2015-2019 combines in one place information on detention conditions in all 28 EU Member States.

It does not ‘rank’ EU Member States, but informs -- drawing on national, European and international standards, case law and monitoring reports – about selected core aspects of detention conditions: including cell space, sanitary conditions, access to healthcare and protection against violence. The database should be especially useful for judges and legal practitioners involved in cross-border cases.
