The Stanford Prison Experiment, conducted by psychologist Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University in 1971, was a study that aimed to explore the psychological effects of the prison environment on both prisoners and prison guards. The study used random volunteers and assigned them the roles of prison guards and prisoners in a simulated prison. The study found that the participants began to quickly adopt their assigned roles, with the guards becoming increasingly authoritarian, and the prisoners becoming increasingly submissive. One real-life example of the results of the Stanford Prison Experiment can be seen in the case of the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. In 2004, a scandal erupted when reports of human rights abuses by American military personnel at Abu Ghraib prison were made public. Many of the abuses were similar to those observed in the Stanford Prison Experiment, with soldiers taking on increasingly authoritarian roles, and prisoners becoming increasingly compliant. This shows how the results of the Stanford Prison Experiment can be seen in real life situations, and how the prison environment can lead to the mistreatment of prisoners.
