Foreign national and ethnic minority prisoners’ participation in formally organized prison activities : a scoping review

Author
Organization
Abstract
This scoping review investigates foreign national and ethnic minority prisoners’ participation in formally organized prison activities and aims to: (1) map available studies on both groups of prisoners’ participation in prison activities (i.e., active citizenship, healthcare and treatment, leisure time, and reintegration activities), and (2) evaluate existing research topics on activity participation and types of prison activities. Following a search in electronic databases, manual searches and expert consultation, 36 studies met the inclusion criteria. Data from these studies were extracted and synthesized qualitatively. The results demonstrate that most literature has focused on ethnic minorities’ activity participation, rather than that of foreign nationals. There was also unequal research attention regarding types of prison activities studied, with healthcare and treatment programs predominant. In addition, this review provides some evidence for the importance of acknowledging and considering the ‘cultural’ diversity among prisoners in providing prison activities. Research gaps and future research avenues on this topic are identified. Finally, the limitations and the implications of this review are considered.
