On the 9th and 10th of October 2018, delegates from both probation and prison gathered in The Hague, The Netherlands, for the CEP and EuroPris Foreign Nationals in Prison and Probation Workshop. The workshop was organised in cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security.
There is an increasing number of foreign nationals detained in prisons or under probation supervision. In terms of management, treatment and preparation for release of this group, prison and probation administrations face numerous and complex challenges.
The workshops included interactive discussions about the challenges that prison and probation services are facing and how these are addressed by the different countries. Transfer of prison and probation sentences under the respective Council of Europe Framework Decisions were discussed as well, as international resettlement practices.
