The 6th World Congress on Probation and Parole was held in The Hague, The Netherlands, from 17 April to 19 April 2024. This edition was the most inclusive and diverse so far: 500 participants from over 60 countries came together to discuss the future of probation and parole. In the programme, speakers from all six continents shared their views on this future and their experiences with and ideas for probation in different contexts. Focusing on the subthemes society, system or practice, they engaged participants in inspirational talks, round tables, workspaces and out-of-the-box sessions. There were also poster presentations and a special future track, in which macro-social trends were translated into a future agenda for the global probation community. In addition to this in-depth focus, participants also strengthened their network and personal connections during the evening programmes and enjoyed special performances by a choir, the Dutch Enkelband (whose members all work for the Dutch Probation Service), a Caribbean brass band and spoken word artists. All in all, the 6th edition was a heart-warming encounter and a stepping stone towards more global collaboration and the development of probation and parole. Want to know more?
