In 2015, the UN General Assembly completed a revision of the UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, and decided to call the revised Rules the 'Nelson Mandela Rules.' We updated the e-course to include the revisions which were made in 8 areas, including healthcare, safety and security, training for prison staff, etc. You can find more about the Mandela Rules by downloading a short guide or watching an Animated introduction (2 minutes) - both available in 7 languages.
