The commission included important Hungarian jurists such as Ferenc Deak, an important figure in the Hungarian liberal movement, and Jozsef Eotvos, a progressive statesman who wrote on prison reform. Ultimately, its proposals were not adopted, but the report remains important for its ambitious scope and humane, enlightened ideas regarding the treatment of crime and criminals.
