Bringing Together Penitentiary Academy Experts to Improve Prison Education Across Europe (November, 2019)
What have internships meant for not only the training of Estonian prison staff but also the development of the prison service as a whole? How have personality tools improved innovated notions of dynamic security in Belgian prisons? And how do Europe’s best practices in penitentiary training compare to the Council of Europe guidelines developed and adopted in April 2019? These questions and more were at the heart of three Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings, organised by the NHC and its partners as part of the EU-funded project Tackling Gaps in Cross-Border Cooperation for Penitentiary Training Academies.
