On Thursday 29 September, EuroPris is organising a webinar co-hosted by the Belgian Prison Service. Overcrowding is an increasingly widespread and common problem in Europe in places of detention. In many countries, it is a very serious concern, impacting possibilities for rehabilitation and re-integration. In some cases, the problem compromises the ability for administrations to fulfill detainees’ basic needs in terms of living conditions, medical care, legal aid, and family visits.

Agenda will be placed here soon.
Professionals from European countries in the following areas:
