“Prison is a mirror of society” – Michal Chroscielewski

The workshop touched upon a variety of topics from different perspectives. Researches on the public opinion on probation and its outcomes were presented, projects, initiatives and activities taken by the probation organisations to raise awareness on what the essence of probation is, a necessity to link with various stakeholders, not closing and stepping outside the comfort zone. The role of NGOs and its crucial place within the criminal justice system by providing additional services and working alongside probation organisations in order to fulfil the gap in the services missing.
