Why is it when we talk about prisons in foreign countries we don't like, we call them "prison camps" and not just "prisons"?

    Perhaps on account of the considerably harsher conditions their prisoners face

    American prisons are tough, but not compared to third and second world prisons....

  • Because quite often, they're camps.

    We have both prisons and prison camps.

    Because confinement is not their main purpose. Usually labor or political re-education is.
