The Academy of European Law (ERA) is organising an online seminar, which forms part of a series of five co-funded by the European Commission on enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions within the context of detention, will focus on how to deal with and attempt to reduce radicalisation in prisons by looking at means of alternatives to imprisonment.
Issues in relation to the use of pre-trial detention will be looked at, as well as the role of the judiciary in disengagement and de-radicalisation. How prisons can better deal with radicalised and extremist prisoners will also be examined.
