The process of sensitizing a society must not ignore past instances in which prison played a central role.

Similar to other programs and projects in which UMAM D&R has been or is currently engaged, our desire to broaden the circle—through any means possible—of people involved in the MPF enterprise remains a primary objective. Accordingly, UMAM D&R is both open to, and looks forward to initiating the kinds of exchanges that lead eventually to building solid partnerships with individuals and organizations focused generally on this topic or specifically on this enterprise.

To help spark such communications, UMAM D&R invites you to join our mailing list and subscribe to our newsletter. We also welcome any contributions you might be inclined to share with us, including research, articles, publications, exhibitions, films and the like, and are excited by the prospect of publishing those products on our blog.

Intended as a long-term initiative that addresses prison-related issues from various perspectives and describes as many of its numerous features as possible, the
MPF will incorporate a variety of sub-projects funded by different donors.

UMAM D&R would like to extend its thanks to the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) and to the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa), which enabled us to launch this initiative.

This version of the MPF website was implemented thanks to a contribution from AFAC.
