Abstract

Prisons are a rich source for literary narratives – but what narratives do prison officers themselves construct about working in a prison and their place in it? How do they talk about their daily work with prisoners, justify disciplinary action or assess prison as a form of punishment in general? As ontological narratives which position and give rise to the self, prison officers’ narratives are highly relevant, as they shape officers’ daily practice, the working of the prison as an organisation and ultimately the way prisoners are treated. Christopher Young combines field notes and interviews from a Swiss prison to reconstruct a typology of prison officers’ narratives of the self. One casts the officer as a tragic hero fighting to prevent the decline of punishment, another positions the officer as a lone fighter attempting to overcome the therapy-adverse inertia of the prison system. As the study shows, this inherent tension ultimately contributes to the failure of the attempt to establish a therapeutic detention unit. Prison officers’ narratives are viewed as shared narratives which cite and echo legal and media discourses, which the author in turn reconstructs on the basis of a discussion of the history of Swiss penal law and practice and a recent corpus of newspaper articles

Abstract

Apart from financing retirement provision, assistance and care for elderly people ist he central issue in Swiss politics concerning elderly people. While medical care has been in focus of the discourse about health and social politics for a while, the issue of care work was often only touched upon. This book discusses legal issues concerning medical care and care work, describes the involved actors, the education, the recruitment and the wages of employees. Furthermore, self-sustained and health promoting living at a high age is an issue. It becomes evident that care work is neither legally defined nor with regards to content. Legal regulations securing quality standards, legal stability for employees as well as the integration of care work into the system of social security, are lacking in practice. In view of these conditions and changes and society, this book shows that the issue of care work needs more consideration in the political discourse concerning elderly people.
