Framework Decisions on Probation

The European Union and the Council of Europe have become increasingly important players in the development of probation in Europe. CEP is not only the voice of probation in Europe, it also wants to stimulate and support initiatives of international cooperation on probation and on the implementation of EU regulations. Below you will find all the information about the implementation of Framework Decisions  2009/829/JHA and 2008/947/JHA.

This animation video was part of the presentation that the International Desk of the Dutch Probation Service held during the 2020 (online) Expert Meeting on Framework Decisions.

One adjustment needs to be made regarding the content: there is no minimum time amount for community measures anymore (in the video it says that these should be at least 80 hours).
