The Digital Prison: Towards an ethics of technology
Prisons are experiencing a digital revolution. This chapter offers readers an opportunity to reflect critically on the new frontiers of digitization in relation to prisons. Our collective research and scholarship have led us to reflect on the impact of digitization and explore the ethical factors of this. We outline the key moral drivers in respect to the digital prison. We apply suggested models of digital rehabilitation and disruptive innovations proposed by other scholars and suggest the fundamental ethical principles that sensitively respond to the prison setting and its people.
