    This new report looks at pre-trial detention in ten jurisdictions: Kenya, South Africa, Brazil, the USA, India, Thailand, England & Wales, Hungary, the Netherlands and Australia. All but one of these (the Netherlands) currently run their prison systems over-capacity. The research included analysis of national legal systems followed by interviews with 60 experienced criminal defence lawyers across the ten countries.
