The Future of Europe in Prisons
In this concluding chapter, the editors identify a number of key issues that emerge from the chapters of the book and raise further questions about the evolution and developments of European institutions and the impact these institutions may have on domestic prison systems. This provides some key topics of a Europe in prisons research agenda. A number of contemporary developments are also touched upon, because they raise questions about the legitimacy of European institutions at large, including what happens in the sphere of imprisonment. Some of these developments are still ongoing; many questions remain present, if not in a direct manner, then at least in a latent way, with the potential to resurface at any time.
