An exploration of staff – prisoner relationships at HMP WhitemoorThis report into staff-prisoner relationships at a high-security prison was commissioned by the Ministry of Justice and carried out by researchers at the University of Cambridge. Whilst it was not their intention to explore relationships between Muslim and non-Muslim prisoners and staff, the theme of faith and in-prison conversions to Islam, as well as the risks of radicalisation, became important during the research. The evidence and discussion of these themes merits the inclusion of this report on Radicalisation Research as even though this isn't a peer-reviewed publication in the traditional sense, it is a valuable addition to the literature on radicalisation in prisons.
