Reconstructing the Central African Republic will require a fair and effective criminal justice system
On 9 January, the Prime Minister of the Central African Republic endorsed three policy documents essential to the demilitarisation and reform of prisons in the Central African Republic. The United Nations MINUSCA partnered with PRI to develop the demilitarisation strategy, in collaboration with national stakeholders.
The aim of the forum was to bring together key civil society actors to discuss and strategise how to tackle the increase and implementation of the use of life imprisonment and to establish a global coalition.
The conference brought together representatives from five countries to share experiences on effective prison management of violent extremism offenders.
To mark the World Day, PRI and the Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide have published a new factsheet examining the prison conditions of women living on death row.
The information would form part of guidance that PRI, together with the Thailand Institute of Justice, is developing on gender-specific rehabilitation and reintegration programmes for women prisoners.
The event, which took place at the OSCE's Human Dimension Implementation Meeting, was co-organised by PRI, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
