The first attempt to set prison standards in Europe was made in 1973 with the introduction of the European Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners by Resolution (73) 5 of the Council of Europe. They sought to adapt to European conditions the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, which were initially formulated as far back as 1955. In 1987 the European Prison Rules were thoroughly revised to allow them. Since 1987 there have been many developments in prison law and practice in Europe. Evolutionary changes in society, crime policy, sentencing practice and research, together with the accession of new member states to the Council of Europe, have significantly altered the context for prison management and the treatment of prisoners. These developments led the European Committee on Crime Problems to entrust the Council for Penological Co-operation with the task of bringing the Rules into line with best current practice. The Recommendation that contains the new version of the European Prison Rules recognises the contribution of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Committee for the Prevention of the Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The present Rules address questions the Rules of 1987 did not consider (double jeopardy, governmental inspection and independent monitoring, ethnic and linguistic minorities, public awareness etc.). The Rules offer guidance to member states that are modernising their prison law and will assist prison administrations in deciding how to exercise their authority even where the Rules have not yet been fully implemented in national law.
