This chapter looks towards the conflict between the issues of risk and human rights in penal policy and prison law in Great Britain. It provides a summary of literatures on risk and discusses the widespread lack of engagement by human rights lawyers in Britain with theorizing the concept of risk or studying its uses in the fields of risk assessment and management. It also attempts to answer the question of why the criminological focus on risk in prison governance has not generated investigations into the relationship between risk and prisoners' human rights.

Keywords:   human rights, risk, penal policy, prison law, Great Britain, human rights lawyers, prisoners' rights
