From the 15th until the 17th of November 2017, the 7th conference for Directors General in Probation took place, this time in Brussels, Belgium. The event was kindly hosted by the French-speaking DG Houses of Justice (Wallonia-Brussels Federation).
The Conference for Directors General is an important biannual conference for the CEP members, where they get the opportunity to exchange knowledge and witness interesting presentations, but it is also a very good opportunity to maintain and develop networks across Europe.
Many topics that are important for the work and world of probation were discussed, as well as several relevant European developments. This Directors General meeting focused on the following key strategic issues for probation:
- Theories and Models of Organisational Change;
- Leading Change in Organisations: A Focus on Quality Assurance;
- Managing Organisational Change and Innovation;
- Coping with the inevitable barrage of changes that confront DG’s daily in attempting to keep probation organisations viable and current.
