Abstract: Given the growing number of recidivists and non-rehabilitated offenders in prisons, the condition of Afghanistan’s prisons requires that scientific research be conducted and its results should be presented to relevant authorities. The purpose of sharing these findings and results is that lawmakers, while enacting relevant laws, judges while issuing sentences, and prison officials while executing sentences, consider the reduction of damages and harm caused by imprisonment to criminals and ultimately to society. This research method is descriptive-analytical, and the findings are based on library and field studies obtained through prison observation and inmate status studies and interviews with experts. This research is conducted in Pul-e-Charki and Kabul Female Prisons. The research findings show that Pul-e-Charkhi Prison and Kabul Female Prison lack sufficient facilities and capacity for prisoners, especially as the number of prisoners in Pul-e-Charkhi Prison exceeds its capacity. The detention regime applicable to the inmates of this prison is a mass detention regime, and the detainees are kept together despite significant differences in terms of age, mental status, type of crime committed, and criminal record. This regime is not only inappropriate, but also harmful, instead of being effective in terms of rehabilitation. Based on the findings of the gradual detention regime research and considering the explicitness of relevant legislative documents, three types of security regimes can cause less harm and be more corrective for prisoners. These three regimes are high security, medium security, and low security regimes. Therefore, the government is responsible for providing a proper detention regime with adequate facilities for prisoners. Although prisoners are indebted to society for committing crimes, indifference and negligence to their basic needs and their need for rehabilitation will leave a negative impact on the entire society.
