On 27 February 2018, the European Commission is organising a Conference on Radicalisation in prisons in Brussels, in close cooperation with the Bulgarian Presidency and with the support of EuroPris and the Confederation of European Probation (CEP).
Participants to the conference will be prison and probation experts, judges and prosecutors, international organisations, academics and relevant NGOs.
The objective of the Conference will be to take stock of the state of play of the projects in the area of radicalisation co-funded by the European Commission. The discussions will be focusing on finding responses in the criminal justice sector. Particular attention will be paid to the use of de-radicalisation, disengagement and rehabilitation programmes, risk assessment tools and alternatives to detention, in particular for juvenile offenders.
The European Commission sent on 11 January an invitation letter the national Prison Services to nominate onerepresentative per Member State.
The invitation letter contained a registration link with which the participants must register their presence at the latest by Thursday 25 January 2018
