Abstract

The article examines the possibilities and limits of taking into account international experience in the sphere of resocialization of prisoners sentenced to the deprivation of liberty. The updated UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners (Nelson Mandela Rule, 2015) are analyzed and special attention is paid to the provisions of this international act on the social ties of prisoners and their guardianship after release. The problems of the formation of the Russian state policy in the sphere of resocialization of persons released from serving their sentences are shown. The notion of resocialization, which is understood as the process of integrating persons who served a sentence, into the system of social relations by means of mastering a new socio-cultural environment is given. The conclusion is made that it is necessary to adopt the federal law «On the resocialization of persons who have served a criminal sentence and were released from it»., which should reflect the main directions and means of post-penitentiary assistance to persons released from serving their sentence. The question is raised about the need to develop a Road Map for resocialization and the real inclusion in civil society of persons who have served a criminal sentence and who have been released from it.
