 “Stand Up for Someone's Rights!” The Nelson Mandela Rules

  • Claudia Constantinescu (University of Bucharest, Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, 9 Schitu Măgureanu Street, District 5, Bucharest, E-mail:

In 2016 the theme of the International Human Rights Day was: “Stand up for someone's rights today!” The students of the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work responded to the United Nations' campaign and stood up for the human rights of the offenders during their detention time and during their reentry into society following imprisonment. Debates with some of the imprisoned and the staff of the Bucharest-Jilava Penitentiary, those who made the event happening, brought into light the Nelson Mandela Rules of December 2015. This article is about the amendments of the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners adopted by the United Nations 60 years ago (the so-called the Nelson Mandela Rules).The document was updated in December 2015 to reflect the new reality of imprisonment. The process of its implementation in ongoing within the Member States and they are technically assisted by the United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime.
