The DUTT project, funded by the Directorate-General Justice, under the E-Justice Programme has been a two year collaborative project between London Probation Trust, the National Offender Management Service for England & Wales, Reclassering Nederland, the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice, the European Network for Probation (CEP) and the Latvian State Probation Service.
Within the context of the EU Framework Decisions 909 and 947, the aim of the DUTT project has been to study and evaluate the use of Video-Conferencing Technology (VCT) and Touch Screen Facilities (TSF) as a means of enhancing the cross-border resettlement of offenders between EU member states. In addition, the project has been looking at the processes of transfer and identifying the roles of key agencies and stakeholders, in order to enhance the implementation of the EU Framework Decisions. This final event will showcase the learning from this project and provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss with other member states some of the practical issues around the implementation of Framework Decision 909 and 947, in terms of cross-border transfers and resettlement.
