This paper considers the response of activists and prison reforming NGOs to the prison disturbances in England in 1990. These prison uprisings led to an apparent flourishing of cooperation between the criminal justice authorities, state and civil society actors. However, the paper questions the role of official patronage in anointing preferred NGOs and delineating limited modes of engagement with citizen-activists. Corresponding with this apparently democratising trend were signs of a trend towards the political containment of civil society critical actors, a trend which has conspicuously hardened under the authoritarian Conservative government elected in 2019.
