Managing Cultural Diversity Inside Prisons

By Carl ToersBijns, Deputy Warden of Administration and Operations (Retired)

Only the ill-advised person would not admit that cultures, no matter whether acceptable [to their own existence] or on a course of collision with others, shape the identities of political principles and practices within our correctional systems. It would also take a foolish person to say that culture does not shape our uniqueness, creativity, vision and personal development in the course of sound prison management. Today, more so than ever, we have to respect and manage our cultural diversity in order to complete those tasks, duties and responsibilities assigned to us. If left out of the big picture it creates more conflicts between ethnical, political or other human related concerns thus destabilizing and hindering the progress of sound correctional practices and compliance with all laws within such a domain or setting. full story
