Dagens citat

"It was clear from the outset that prisoners and staff do things together. Food is important in prisons and in Kvíabryggja the communal dining room is a central space. It is where prisoners have breakfast, lunch and dinner together with staff. Prisoners cook the food, and with an officer they do the weekly food shop in a nearby village. Food was plentiful and tasty. It is considered bad form not to thank the prisoner chefs for their efforts. And you have to clean up after yourself."

Francis Pakes, professor i kriminologi vid University of Portsmouth, skriver i The Conversation om sin erfarenhet som frivillig fånge vid den öppna anstalten Kvíabryggja utanför Grundarfjörður.
