Prisoners’ rights and their better treatment and successful resocialization process have always been an important issue on the agenda of international organizations and in most of democratic societies. The United Nations have brought many international documents in this area, trying to obligate the member states to guarantee prisoners’ their human rights, but also a dignified life while they are imprisoned. Also, the UN with the Resolution 2010/16 have brought the United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-Custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the Bangkok Rules) which were meant to be used by countries in direction of improvement of conditions in female penitentiary institutions. In the Republic of Macedonia, women are incarcerated in the only female penitentiary institution which is a part of the Penitentiary institution KPD “Idrizovo”, at around 17 kilometres from the capital Skopje. It is also important that in addition to being the female prison the same institution functions as educational–correctional home for female juveniles. The reports of the Office of the Ombudsman of the Republic of Macedonia detect several institutional and professional weaknesses. Which are the international rules and directions in the process of building a better life for incarcerated women? How does the Macedonian female penitentiary institution look like? Has it changed since 1947? Which are the steps that Republic of Macedonia has undertaken in making better living conditions for incarcerated women? What is left to be done?
Key words: Bangkok rules, human rights, incarcerated women, penitentiary institutions, Republic of Macedonia.
