In close co-operation with the Norwegian Directorate of Correctional Service (KDI) and the Correctional Service of Norway Staff Academy (KRUS), CEP will organise a conference on Working with young adult offenders – in the age category of 16 to 25 years old. It would seem this is an appropriate subject in a time where much attention is – rightly – given to the category of juvenile offenders under 18 years old.
The conference will take place in Lillestrøm, Norway on the 31st August- 1st September 2016.
The program, with representations from many different countries, includes contributions from Norway, The Netherlands, the United States of America, Catalonia, Slovenia, Estonia, Belgium, England and Scotland. The program will run as a lunch-to-lunch seminar and will combine plenary sessions and workshops with specific themes.
Subjects to be presented and discussed include inter alia:
There is also attention for specific Norwegian initiatives like the new “Juvenile sanction” and the special unit for young offenders with a prison sentence. The program as a whole can be seen here.
Venue and accommodation
