France in focus

A rare look inside France's prison system

This week we look into the challenges faced by France's penitentiary system. The subject is a touchy one in a country where overpopulated jails are a longstanding and ever-growing problem. We head to a prison on the Ile de Ré on the Atlantic Coast, where we meet inmates and prison staff. We take a closer look at the initiatives being tested to avoid repeat offences and help inmates prepare for life after detention through sport, but also French classes.
