CEP – Conference for Directors General of Probation
Probation, reintegration and restoration
11-12th April 2013
Every two years, the Directors-General of Probation in Europe meet with each other to discuss current affairs and specific themes. These meetings are arranged by CEP in collaboration with one of the national services. The next meeting will be held on the 11th and 12th of April 2013 in Oslo and is organized together with the Correctional Services of Norway.
As this is the first meeting after the Criminal Justice Platform has been established, CEP would very much like to invite representatives from partners to attend. The central theme has been chosen in accordance with the important overlaps in the work of all four organizations: “Probation, reintegration and restoration”. Speakers are invited to contribute on this theme. In what way should our organizations co-operate in order to improve the possibilities for restorative practices during the serving of a prison or a community sentence? What are the specific advantages? What challenges and hindrances are there? How can they be overcome? Is there good practice in this field that we may share with each other?
The conference will be held at the Holmenkollen Park Hotel in Oslo (www.holmenkollenparkhotel.no) and will start with a reception on Wednesday evening the 10th of April. The working language of the conference will be English.
