The Pan-European Conference “Sport and Prison”, is co-organised by the French National Olympic Committee and the Council of Europe’s Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport, in co-operation with the French Ministry of Sport and the French Ministry of Justice. The event will take place on 16 and 17 June 2014 in Paris. The conference will focus on two main issues. On the one hand,the presentation of the survey results on the management of various prisons in member states of the Council of Europe. The questionnaire was developed and sent to the Council of Europe member states in December 2013. The objective of this consultancy is to provide Council of Europe member states with a handbook containing a set of criteria which would allow them to evaluate, assess and plan specific (existing or future) ‘sport in prison’ projects, as well as presenting a set of good practice examples illustrating this. On the other hand, the conference will give to member state the opportunity to present good practice examples in order to show how the benefits of sport in a prison environment can be capitalised upon.
