Lausanne : Prison for Profit
This debat is preceded by the movie:
By Ilse Van Velzen & Femke Van Velzen
The South African private prison of Mangaung opened its doors in 2001. Its operator, the security company G4S, promises state-of-the-art treatment for the 3,000 prisoners - naturally, at the lowest cost. But once the G4S shareholder logic takes hold, with its expectation of a return on investment, the reality is quite different: the prison is gradually deteriorating and becoming much more expensive than when it was State-run. G4S, which operates in 90 countries, is the world's third largest private employer and this compelling documentary reveals the secrets of a sick global economy.
