To promote the implementation of the Council of Europe’s Recommendations concerning foreign prisoners CM/Rec (2012) 12, the EuroPris & CEP Foreign Nationals in Prison and Probation Expert Group is collecting examples of how European prison and probation services are meeting the needs of foreign prisoners and foreign offenders in policy and operational practice.
The examples are included in the ‘Good Practice Manual for working with Foreign Prisoners’ for the use of Prison and Probation Services to develop their own policies and practice. Examples are recorded next to the relevant CoE Recommendation, with a brief description of the initiative, information on whether it is a national, regional or local initiative, the legal basis and budgetary implications of the initiative and contact details to obtain further information.
Should you know of any initiatives which could be included in the Manual, please provide information on the form ‘Examples of Good Practice with foreign prisoners’, send it to us and it will be placed into the Manual.
