CEP creates many opportunities for its members to meet and exchange ideas and information about different probation topics. CEP welcomes every organisation in the field of probation to consider joining CEP and become part of this pan-European movement. Our membership offers:
- Invitations to our international workshops and conferences – each year there are between 4 and 8 events. Topics over the past years have included Electronic Monitoring, Technology in Probation, Resettlement, Sex Offenders, Community Sanctions, Youth Justice, Developing new National Services and Workshops for Director Generals of Probation, Future of probation;
- Access to the largest European international network of probation organisations – CEP can put you into contact with probation people across the world, from policy makers and managers to practitioners and others. Not just Europe, but all across the world – CEP has formal links with probation organisations in North America and Asia/Australia.
- The right to fully take part in our General Assembly and Congress – this large scale event takes place every three years. Member organisations which provide probation services and/or bear responsibility for probation in their country not only have the right to contribute to all debates and discussions at the General Assembly, but also have voting rights with which they can influence the priorities of CEP (please be informed that the associate membership does not give the right to vote at the General Assembly)
- Inclusion in our communication network – you will have involvement in our links with the Council of Europe and the European Union. Your organisation will have the opportunity to contribute with ideas and events to our programme and the opportunity to contribute with ideas for publications on the CEP website and in the CEP Newsletter.
