Prison Management and Prison Staff

Prison Management and Prison Staff

(p.178) 7 Prison Management and Prison Staff
Paramilitary Imprisonment in Northern Ireland

Kieran McEvoy

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins the analysis of prison management by examining the relevance of the academic literature on prison management and prison staff to the Northern Ireland context. Three key themes are identified from the literature, which are of assistance in the elucidation of the proposed models of prison management for Northern Ireland. These themes are the response of prison management to organised groupings of prisoners, the significance of power relations to the process of prison management, and the relationship between prison management and prison staff. With regard to relations with prison staff, a number of further issues are identified from the literature which are of particular relevance to the current study. These include the nature of the staff/prisoner relationship and the attitudes of staff towards prisoners, the particular difficulties with regard to staff morale in the Northern Ireland Prison Service, and a brief discussion on the political and ideological influences of the different prison management models and their effects on staff.

Keywords:   staff morale, power relations, prison management, prison staff
