The Criminal Justice Platform Europe (CJPE) organises the 3rd International Criminal Justice Summer Course in Barcelona (2-5 July 2019). The Summer Course will be a combination of workshops, plenary sessions and field visits bringing together participants with a background in prison, probation and restorative justice from a variety of European countries.
The theme chosen for this edition of the Summer Course is “Criminal Justice in a Polarised Society“. The aim is to offer a unique opportunity for criminal justice colleagues from different jurisdictions to reflect on what impact polarisation is having upon crime. Extremist views in the media attract huge attention; reactions across society can create anxiety, anger, harm; politics and religion seem more divisive than ever; and professionals in the criminal justice system have to find a way to engage with diverse offenders and prevent paths that may lead to further violence. By sharing ideas and considering the very latest research and programmes, participants of this Summer Course will be stimulated to engage with the debate on polarisation and to make a positive contribution back home.
Each organisation member of CJPE will address the main topic from a different but complementary angle in one of the 3 parallel workshop sessions:
This event is only open for public sector participants, including NGOs and academics. European participants will be prioritised. There will be a limit of 5 people per country per workshop.
The early bird fee is 375 euros (425€ after 15 April 2019) and it includes materials, coffee breaks, one dinner, a local visit and certificate of attendance.
