Summary
This text discusses the role of the prison in Europe across a divide of over 200 years. Inspired by the travels of the prison reformer John Howard (1726-1790), who visited prisons across Europe in the 18th century, it fundamentally reflects on centuries of the practice of locking people up as punishment
