The purpose of the paper is to analyze the material conditions in
Macedonian penitentiary institutions, and to detect the ongoing problems, which are
not new. Also, the detected problems will be connected to international documents
from the area, and possible solutions will be recommended.
For the goals of the research, we’ve used analysis of content (the reports of
CPT, the National Preventive Mechanism, and the Helsinki Committee for Human
Rights), and the comparative method (comparing the progress or regress of the
material conditions and respect of the rights of incarcerated population in
penitentiary institutions in North Macedonia).
Although there is certain progress in improvement of prison’s conditions,
still most of Macedonian penitentiary institutions have wards with inhumane
conditions contrary to international basic standards.
Although the paper includes content analysis of published reports by international
and national organizations, and also NGO’s, it still has an importance, because it
makes synthesis of the most notable and important reports regarding the situation in
North Macedonia’s prison system.
