    Prison and its specifics present a territory, where a completely unique social system is developed. This social system has been researched since the origin of prisons. The goal of this BA dissertation entitled »Prison subculture in prisons Ljubljana and Dob pri Mirni« is to investigate the characteristics of prison subculture in two biggest prisons in Slovenia, and also how prison subculture affects the every day life of people in them. In the theoretical part we first present total institutions, their origin, formation and development and the term, which is (in bibliography) almost always mentioned in the concept of total instituions - deinstitutionalisation. In the second part we describe the characteristics and specifics of the institution, where the research subject exists – the prison. The end of this part contains a short presentation of Slovenian prisons. Because the interviews used in graduation research took place in prisons Ljubljana and Dob pri Mirni, these two are presented in more detail. The emphasis in the next chapters is on reviewing the features of prison as a social system, prisonization and two theoretical models (deprivation model and importation model). These two models reveal the factors that affect the prisonization process. We also present the adaptation strategies (for the life in prison) of the inmates. The final segment of the theoretical part is focused on the terms subculture and prison subculture and emphasises the vital elements for the understanding of prison subculture. The empirical part of this dissertation presents the research methodology, data collection and processing, and the interpretation of the results.
