CJPE workshop on alternatives to detention

The Criminal Justice Platform Europe is organising the workshop ALTERNATIVES TO DETENTION on 3 November 2016 in Barcelona (Spain).

The main organiser of this event is the Confederation of European Probation (CEP). The workshop will enable experts in the field of criminal justice* to consider the content and implications of the revised European Rules on Community Sanctions and Measures of the Council of Europe and to consider the latest developments in alternatives to detention across Europe’s prison and probation systems. The event will be a combination of presentations and participative workshops.

*The event is designed for leaders and senior managers from criminal justice organisations (prisons, probation, youth justice, victims, community) and people leading the thinking on interventions and the challenges of policy (policy and research).
