In cooperation with the Confederation of European Probation and the European Forum for Urban Security, EuroPris organises 12-13 November a workshop in Barcelona, Spain . The workshop will focus on the interagency cooperation between prisons, probation and municipalities when preparing offenders for their return to society.
When considering the rehabilitation of persons who have committed a crime resulting in imprisonment, a critical stage of the process is when they are released to the community. This is an important moment of transition when the person needs support in several areas of his/her life. Research indicates that this transition management is a crucial in the rehabilitation process..
In order to support all aspects of the person’s reintegration and rehabilitation (e.g., education, health, housing, employment) there needs to be positive and genuine cooperation between the various services involved: prison, probation, municipalities, NGO’s, amongst others. The aim is to establish a long-term and consistent rehabilitation process, to increase the opportunity for positive outcomes and to reduce reoffending.
To this end we will organize a Workshop on Interagency cooperation where different European countries will be invited to present good practice, successful projects and effective ways of cooperation between the different actors involved in the process from prison and probation back to the community.
At the workshop experiences will be shared by speakers from the following countries: Germany, Netherlands, Catalonia, France – and more to come.
Draft workshop agenda can be found here.
The workshop is only open for the Public Sector, Academics and NGO’s from European countries.
Number of participants will be limited to 80.
