A ameaça jihadista nos estabelecimentos prisionais: desafios e dilemas

Translated title of the contribution: The Jihadist Threat in Prisons: Challenges and Dilemmas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Traditionally, an inmate convicted for terrorism behaves differently from the typical inmate because he understands that he was jailed for his ideas – and not the actions that he has taken. On the other end, the jails are a privileged place concerning radicalization and recruitment for the jihadist terrorism.
For that matter, and based in several field works realized in several penal systems (USA, Great-Britain, Spain, France), the objective of this article is to analyze the
jihadist threat, with the scope to propose several measures to combat this phenomenon, and to proceed in the end with a counterpoint regarding the penal Portuguese system.
