2008 (English)In: Global Criminology and Criminal Justice: Current Issues and Perspectives / [ed] Nick Larsen & Russell Charles Smandyck, Peterborough, Ont.: Broadview Press , 2008, 415-432 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Countries such as Finland, Holland and Sweden have witnessed similar economic and social developments and have been affected by similar crime trends. However, over the past 50 years, the daily prison populations in these three Northern European countries have developed very differently. An attempt is made here to discuss these diverse developments in the light of a perspective that treats daily prison populations as political constructs.
