Overcrowding as it is called is the most important reason for the failure of states to meet minimum standards of humanity. Overcrowding as a Europe-wide phenomenon arises as the most acute source of concern, and inevitably effects the image of law enforcement. This issue and its effects are rather divergent: namely, the lack of appropriate number of places is only one of the possible consequences. Overcrowding is accompanied by, for example, limited work and detainee programme opportunities, but it could also affect hygienic conditions, healthcare and nutrition. In addition, it could also have negative influence on the physical and mental state of detainees, it could generate tension and violence, moreover, as indicated by the 2nd and 11th General Report of European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT), it could result in inhumane, degrading treatment. The aim of this paper is to describe what we mean by overcrowding; how is overcrowding explained, how overcrowding is measured. The article attempts to reveal the reasons for overcrowding, and also indicates that the fight against the overcrowding of prisons presumes a comprehensive strategy, as the first step of which the reasons leading to overcrowding shall be analysed.
