Abstract

This article presents the findings of the author's doctoral research with male Polish prisoners incarcerated in Northern Ireland. Debating the need for expanding our understanding of how the pains of confinement are experienced differentially depending on citizenship, nationality and linguistic ability, the article argues that in the case of those prisoners the exercise of prison power focused on exclusionary practices. This has had an impact on how those prisoners were able (or not) to resist the prison regime. The discussion reflects on how this exclusionary power of the prison is aided by two external forces - the UK's immigration system and Poland's criminal justice system - in maintaining 'order' and compliance.
