The Criminal Justice Platform Europe (CJPE) is launching the 2nd International Criminal Justice Summer Course in Barcelona (3-6 July 2018). The Summer Course will be a combination of workshops, plenary sessions and field visits bringing together participants with a background in prison, probation and restorative justice from a variety of European countries. Check the booklet (incl. programme and bios) and register now to keep your seat!
The main theme of this year is Radicalisation & Violent Extremist Offenders. Each organisation member of CJPE will address this topic from a different but complementary angle in one of the 3 parallel workshop sessions:
- The European Organisation of Prison and Correctional Services (EuroPris) will focus on the characteristics of Violent Extremist Offenders (VEO) coming into prisons: assessment, treatment and reintegration
- The Confederation of European Probation (CEP) will explore ‘alternatives to detention’: concrete activities and practices that help to develop understanding and competences for working with VEOs
- The European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) will look at reimagining Violent Extremism (restoratively): sharing feelings, listening to stories and involving victims as a response to understand radicalisation
Each workshop will have a specific focus for understanding and responding to radicalisation. Methods will include training, presentations and discussions among the participants. The aim is to examine key practice issues, inspire new thinking, promote cross-fertilization and build new networks to improve services and practice in prisons, probation and restorative justice.
