In 1998, the Centre for Conflict Resolution was invited by Pollsmoor Prison to run conflict resolution workshops for staff members working with juveniles in the Admission Centre. Pollsmoor Prison is the largest maximum security prison in the Western Cape of South Africa. The staff of the prison had identified conflict resolution as an important part of transformation in the prison, especially to reduce violence and to build better relationships among prisoners, staff, and management. The authors of this article report on the Prisons Transformation Project of the Centre for Conflict Resolution, a project influenced by the initial work with Pollsmoor Prison and by the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report.
