Expert groups are networks of European specialists in fields related to probation, which operate under the wings of CEP. These groups are platforms for discussion and knowledge exchange on specific topics and are composed of experts from Universities, probation organisations, our expert register and the CEP secretariat, who play a supportive role in expert groups by making available its expert knowledge, network and communication channels, such as this website and the CEP digital newsletter. Most of the Expert Groups do not consist of permanent members, except of the one on the topic of Foreign Nationals.
The CEP facilitates four expert groups on the topics of Foreign Nationals, Radicalisation, Sex Offenders and Technology. For more information on the specific expert groups, take a look at the menu on the left side of this page.
