Israeli prisons have recently initiated a rehabilitation program known as Prison Radio. This article suggests that since prison radio shares similar characteristics with educational radio, inmates may operate the radio stations with high motivation and self-fulfilment since they determine the content of the programs. Inmates may also acquire work-related tools and habits and strengthen their self-confidence, which allows adopting constructive behavioural patterns. Therefore, empowering prisoners through radio station activities may encourage their normative reintegration into society.
