On Monday 22nd February, the European Day for the Victims of Crime, CEP and EuroPris organized their fourth joint expert meeting on Domestic Violence in prison and probation.
Via Zoom the group of experts came together online to share their experiences on Domestic Violence work during the Covid-19 pandemic – the increase of cases, the problems of having to work with offenders and victims remotely, the difficulties of being in a lockdown, and many other aspects.
Alessandra Pauncz, Executive Director of the European Network for Work with Perpetrators , gave a presentation on her organization’s work with an emphasis on three topics : the guidelines that they had drafted for working with offenders, the types of crime that had increased during the pandemic, and the lessons learnt from the last year.
