Registration is now open to the virtual presentation of the UNODC Handbook on the Classification of Prisoners which will take place on:
Thursday, 4 February 2021 | 10:30 Vienna | 11:30 Cairo | 12:30 Doha.
UNODC’s new Handbook on the Classification of Prisoners is designed to provide practical information and guidelines to support prison administrations with the development of an effective system that meets international standards. It is based on grounded research evidence and the experience of numerous countries that have implemented such systems. Although primarily designed for prison officers, it is also intended to be a useful resource guide for other criminal justice officials and parties involved in the criminal justice system.
The virtual event will serve to promote this practice-oriented Handbook which provides realistic recommendations and options to assist in implementing a sound prisoner assessment and classification system.
The agenda includes:
Brief introduction to the Handbook
Importance of classification systems
