Corrections is not only about the time spent in prison. Since most of the people that we incarcerate are released and returned back to their communities at some point, a significant task of criminal justice agencies is also to focus on this eventual ‘return’. From both a decency and a public safety perspective, it is pivotal that prisons and probation do all they can to assist in reintegration. But what constitutes good or effective reintegration? What does a ‘successful’ transition from custody to the community look and feel like? What can we learn from research and practice in this regard? For this symposium, we welcome both evidence-based and practice-informed discussions of how meaningful re/integration can be achieved.
EuroPris and ICPA in collaboration with the Portuguese Reintegration and Prison Service (DGRSP) will organise on 27-30 March 2023 in Porto, Portugal the 3rd international Correctional Research Symposium (CRS) on the theme:
Rehabilitating Reintegration: Research and Reflections on What Works
For those who would like to travel to Porto earlier, the General Directorate of Reintegration and Prisons (DGRSP) will be organising a half-day pre-conference training session (1400-1700hrs) at the University Campus in Porto.
The full programme is currently in development, but here are a few highlights:
Keynote Presentation: Bridging the Void – Supporting Reintegration
Panel Discussion: International Perspectives on Key Challenges for Rehabilitating Reintegration
What Works vs. What’s Right in Rehabilitating Reintegration
Mental Health and Reoffending: Latest Evidence on Assessment and Treatment
On the Tuesday evening we will also be running a Social Programme (dinner on a boat) courtesy of our hosts DGRSP. This is optional and can be selected during your registration for the event.
For those wishing to stay longer in Porto our hosts will be organising visits to custodial establishments including a mental health institution and/or probation centre.
