Reducing Prison Overcrowding

January 27, 2016

Horizon has travelled throughout Somaliland visiting prisons and collecting information from inmates, detained juveniles, and prison officials on the conditions of the prisons, the quality of legal aid services, and what challenges the prison system faces.  Horizon's objective in improving prison conditions is to decongest the prisons, provide better and consistent legal aid services for juveniles, and eventually create diversion programs that operate within a framework of restorative justice to the benefit of the community.


  • Our work includes:

    • Review of prison conditions
    • Researching the status legal aid services provided to detained juveniles
    • Research and data collection on prisons throughout the region
