Bi-regional high-level conference on alternatives to prison

Due to its relative youth, the alternative programmes to prisons have to respond to huge challenges which can only be overcome through the highest political commitment to make significant progress at a policy level, the provision of appropriate resources, the articulation of social and health care responses coordinated with the judicial system and the rigorous evaluation of the initiatives developed so far. In this framework, the 2nd Bi-Regional meeting for the exchange of Best practices is planned in close coordination with other European Union funded regional programmes which are working in the fields of security and social policy: EL PAcCTO and EUROsociAL+.
