This is a first-hand account of the often appalling conditions inprisons, police stations, psychiatric institutions, detentioncentres and other places where individuals are deprived of theirliberty. It is based on extensive inspections in many countries inEurope, including the UK, France, Spain, Greece and Turkey, by agroup of inspectors who had hitherto unparalleled access toinstitutions of detention.
Inhuman States is a gripping account of the seamy side of Europe,of those 'social dustbins' that most people tend to ignore and ofthe practices - including torture - which take place within them.But it is also a book about some general concepts - what is'human'? What should 'inhuman' or 'degrading' mean? Should generalstandards be uniformly applied to countries with diversetraditions, legal systems and conditions of life?
This book is also a forceful plea for a better and more civilizedEurope. Cassese argues that Europe should be unified not only inthe field of markets, banks, lawyers, and commerce: an effortshould also be made to set out and implement at least some commonEuropean standards of justice with regard to those places ofdetention where each country relegates its misfits, deviants andall those who are thought to imperil the social fabric.
